The data were collected in two institutions, the Psychiatric Hospital Opava and the Psychiatric Hospital Kroměříž, Czech Republic. The 10-item version of the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS-10) was administered to 153 inpatients, out of which 56.2% were women (n = 86). Age of the respondents ranged from 16 to 71 years (M = 41.94, SD = 12.49). Average time of hospitalization was 36 days (SD = 27.16, five outliers with hospitalization ranging from 126 to 344 days were removed from the calculation). Respondents were also divided into two groups according to the length of hospitalization. The first group consisted of 74 patients hospitalized for less than one month (M = 14.51 days, SD = 9.40), the second group consisted of 79 patients hospitalized for more than one month (M = 68.39 days, SD = 43.00). Moreover, a legend is provided in a separate file. The dataset was used to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Czech version of the PSS-10 in a sample of psychiatric hospital inpatients.
