Abstract

The present study examined the factor structure of the Suicide Probability Scale with a sample of 390 undergraduates, using confirmatory factor analysis. The original oblique four-factor structure provided a poor fit to the data. Scores on the total scale correlated .63 with scores on a validated self-report measure of mood and .51 and .42 with anxiety symptoms. Additional norms for the total scale are reported.
