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: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)   #121400

Definition: This is a questionnaire to assess posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an anxiety disorder characterized by reliving a terrifying event- such as violent personal assaults, natural or human-caused disasters, accidents, or military combat - and avoiding associated situations (American Psychiatric Association, 2000).

Purpose: This measure is used to screen an individual for the presence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Posttraumatic stress disorder has a lifetime prevalence around 8% in adults and is associated with higher rates of depression, anxiety disorders, and substance abuse. Posttraumatic stress disorder displays evidence of a heritable component and is linked to a family history of depression (American Psychiatric Association, 2000).
