Messinvarianz zwischen den Geschlechtern in der deutschen Version des Young Adult Self-Report (YASR) - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Agrez, Urska; Zimprich, Daniel; Steinhausen, Hans-Christoph (2014). Messinvarianz zwischen den Geschlechtern in der deutschen Version des Young Adult Self-Report (YASR). Zeitschrift für Klinische Psychologie und Psychotherapie, 43(3):192-203.

Abstract

Die vorliegende Studie testete die Messinvarianz (MI) zwischen den Geschlechtern des 8-Faktoren Modells, welches der Deutsch-Schweizerischen Version des Young Adult Self-Report (YASR) unterliegt. Verschiedene Stufen der MI wurden an den Daten von jungen Schweizer Erwachsenen (N = 951, Durchschnittsalter = 19.8 Jahre, 56.3 % Frauen) aus einer repräsentativen epidemiologischen Stichprobe untersucht. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass die gemessenen Konstrukte zwischen den Geschlechtern invariant sind. Es bestand eine partielle starke Invarianz der Messung, da manche Indikatoren des aggressiven Verhaltens zwischen den Gruppen unterschiedlich wirkten. Ferner wurden Geschlechtsunterschiede zwischen einigen Faktor-Interkorrelationen gefunden. Die Unterschiede zwischen Faktorenmittelwerten bei sechs der acht Faktoren bestätigten die bekannte höhere Prävalenz von internalisierenden Störungen bei jungen Frauen und die höhere Prävalenz von externalisierenden Störungen bei jungen Männern.

The present study tested measurement invariance (MI) across sex of the 8-factor model underlying the Swiss-German version of the Young Adult Self-Report (YASR). Data from a large sample of Swiss young adults (N = 951, mean age = 19.8 years, 56.3 % women), originating from a representative epidemiological sample, served to test different levels of MI. In general, the measured constructs were invariant across sex. There was only a partial strong invariance of the measurement because some indicators of aggressive behaviour performed differently in the two sex groups. Sex differences were found also in some correlations between the model factors as well as in six of the eight factor means. The observed differences in means are consistent with previous findings about internalizing problems being more prevalent in young women and externalizing problems being more prevalent in young men.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
