Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Schizophrenia Screener   #120700

Definition: A questionnaire to assess schizophrenia, a condition that lasts 6 months or more including a period of 1 month or more characterized by two or more of the following: delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, grossly disorganized behavior, catatonic behavior, or negative symptoms (American Psychiatric Association, 2000).

Purpose: This measure is used to screen an individual for schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is an often devastating neuropsychiatric condition that occurs in about 1% of the population and demonstrates a familial pattern with higher rates in first degree relatives of patients with schizophrenia when compared to the general population. Several strong candidate genes have been identified. Studies of identical and fraternal twins with schizophrenia have also indicated that environmental factors also play a role in etiology. Schizophrenia may co-occur with a number of other conditions including alcohol, tobacco and substance abuse or dependence, violent behavior, and symptoms of depression, mania, and anxiety (American Psychiatric Association, 2000).
