Corty, Eric; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v61 n1 p165-70 Feb 1993
Examined interrater reliability of diagnoses made on basis of structured interview for psychiatric patients with and without psychoactive substance use disorders (PSUDs). Results from 47 pairs of ratings by 9 clinical interviewers revealed that interrater reliability for non-PSUD psychiatric diagnoses was quite high when patient had no diagnosable PSUD; it was lower, though substantial, when PSUD was present.
