This is not unexpected because the test-retest reliability (or kappa) of the SCID in the … Uma análise de componentes principais com rotação ortogonal indicou fator de "irritabilidade-pensamentos acelerados" e outro de "energia-atividade", que explicaram 39,1% da variação dos escores.

Abstract The Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ) is an established screening tool for bipolar spectrum disorders (BSD), but has not been validated in diverse populations and the best scoring method remains uncertain. Both the triad and full MDQ significantly predicted BD diagnosis (p < .001), but the triad had optimal operating characteristics, particularly at a cut-off of two. Limitations reliability for the MDQ are satisfactory [10]. Prevalence of bipolar disorder, its treatment and patient functioning. This report describes the validation of a new brief self-report screening instrument for bipolar spectrum disorders called the Mood Disorder Questionnaire. anhedonic depression.

Conclusions: If we consider exactly what a Kappa of 0.4 implies for a disorder with an "identified" prevalence rate of 2%, we discover that the prevalence rate may have been under-diagnosed approximately 1.5-fold, so 67% of cases may not have been identified and 50% of the identified cases may be false positives. disorder.
