Prevalence of Self-Reported Depressive Symptoms in Young Adolescents.
Schoenbach, Victor J.; And Others
American Journal of Public Health, v73 n11 p1281-87 Nov 1983
To investigate significance and measurement of depressive symptoms in young adolescents, 624 students were asked to complete the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) during home interviews. The presence of persistent symptoms varied by both race and sex. Results support the feasibility of using a self-report symptom scale to measure adolescent depression. (GC)
