- There is no normative data for the SCI population at this time.
MCID: not established

- Internal consistency of the cognitive/affective depression subscale is excellent (Cronbach’s a = 0.89).
- Internal consistency of the somatic depression subscale is adequate (Cronbach’s a = 0.62).
(Buckelew et al. 1988)
The SCL-90-R subscales were correlated with the Medically-Based Emotional Distress Scale (MEDS) which measures the same constructs; correlations were poor to excellent for the SCL-90-R Depression subscale (r = 0.15-0.72), SCL-90-R Hostility subscale (r = 0.14-0.72), adequate for SCL-90-R Anxiety subscale (r = 0.48-0.59) and adequate to excellent for the SCL-90-R Interpersonal Sensitivity subscale (r = 0.44-0.71).
(Buckelew et al. 1988, Overholser et al. 1993)
No values were reported for the responsiveness of the SCL-90-R for the SCI population.
No values were reported for the presence of floor/ceiling effects in the SCL-90-R for the SCI population.
