Structural Validity of the Life Regard Index
Steger, Michael F.
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v40 n2 p97 Jul 2007
Counselors and researchers interested in examining meaning in life often use the Life Regard Index (LRI; J. Battista & R. Almond, 1973). In this study, confirmatory factor analyses (CFAs) of several factor models based on J. Battista & R. Almond's work failed to support the structural validity of the LRI. CFA results suggested an influence of positive and negative item wording, and subsequent exploratory factor analyses suggested 3 factors for the LRI. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
