Percentile norms (with interval estimates) for mood scales (BAI, BDI, CRSD, CES-D, DASS, DASS-21, STAI-X, STAI-Y, SRDS, and SRAS)

Program: MoodScore_PRs_Aus.exe

This program for PCs accompanies the paper: Crawford, J. R., Cayley, C., Wilson, P. H., Lovibond, P. F., & Hartley, C. (2011). Percentile norms and accompanying interval estimates from an Australian general adult population sample for self‑report mood scales (BAI, BDI, CRSD, CES‑D, DASS, DASS‑21, STAI‑X, STAI‑Y, SRDS, and SRAS). The Australian Psychologist, 46, 3-14.

The program (MoodScore_PRs_Aus.exe) takes an individual's raw scores on commonly used mood scales and expresses the scores as percentile ranks. The point estimates of the percentile ranks are accompanied by 95% interval estimates (these can be calculated using either Bayesian or classical statistical methods - the two sets of limits normally give very similar intervals).
