Melchert, Timothy P.; Sayger, Thomas V.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v58 n1 p99-118 Feb 1998
This report describes the development of the Family Background Questionnaire, a 179-item instrument with 22 subscales designed to assess memories of family characteristics. Results with 1,020 college students in three separate studies for initial reliability and validity, factor analysis, and test-retest reliability support the reliability and validity of the measure, and results from 35 sibling pairs were correlated as expected.
