Journal of College Student Development, v41 n4 p415-26 Jul-Aug 2000
Introduces the College Student Social Support Scale (CSSSS) and presents initial psychometric data. Six-hundred and seven college students ranging in age from 18 to 31, across three studies, participated in the development and validation of this new self-report measure. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses suggest that the CSSSS is a reliable measure of social support. (Contains 36 references and 4 tables.) (Author/GCP)
