About the test
The test above is the CES-D (The Centre for Epidemiologic Studies – Depression Scale) by the National Institute for Mental Health (YEAR)in the USA. This quick self-test measures a person’s depressive feelings and behaviours during the past week, allowing him/her to detect his/her depression quotient.
The twenty questions in the CES-D can be divided into four major aspects, including depressive feelings, physical symptoms, positive feelings, and “interpersonal relationships”. The test is frequently used by researchers worldwide, as it provides reliable references to depression-related studies. The CES-D is also a useful tool in areas concerning psychological health.
