Description

This poster will present two newly developed scales, constructed from variables in the NCI. Using Confirmatory Factor Analysis, the researchers developed a new Personal Opportunity scale (consisting of factors clustered in the areas of social participation, rights, and choices) and a Wellness Indicators scale (consisting of factor clusters related to heart health and behavioral health). Implications for researchers and policymakers will be discussed.
