Validation and Cultural Adaptation of the Suicide Risk Factors Scale for Iranian Adolescents in 2022: A Cross-Sectional Study
This dataset contains the data collected from a cross-sectional study that aimed to validate and culturally adapt the Suicide Risk Factors Scale (SRFS) for Iranian adolescent girls. The SRFS is a self-report measure that assesses the frequency of various psychosocial risk factors for suicidal behaviors in adolescents. The dataset includes the responses of 1050 Iranian adolescent girls from 16 high schools in Bandar abas city, who completed the Persian version of the SRFS and the Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI) scales. The dataset also includes the results of the psychometric analyses of the SRFS, such as face validity, content validity, construct validity, and reliability. The dataset can be used to explore the suicide risk factors in Iranian adolescent girls and to compare them with other populations. The dataset can also be used to evaluate the validity and reliability of the SRFS in different contexts and cultures. The dataset is in SPSS format and consists of two files: one for the raw data and one for the psychometric analyses.
Steps to reproduce
he study population consisted of all Iranian adolescent girls who were studying in high schools in Bandar abas city in 2022. The minimum sample size required for concurrent validity was suggested to be between 50 and 200 people, which was considered 200 people in this study . Also, the number of samples required for exploratory factor analysis was considered 20 people per question, according to which 420 people were calculated for exploratory factor analysis, and considering the possibility of sample loss, 450 people were finally selected for exploratory factor analysis . Also, for confirmatory factor analysis, at least 200 to 300 people were suggested, according to which 300 people were considered as a sample in the confirmatory factor analysis section of this study . The minimum sample required for internal reliability is 30 samples, which in this study 100 people have been considered. Based on the mentioned criteria, the minimum sample size required for convergent validity, exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis and internal reliability was determined as 1050 students. For sampling in convergent validity, factor analysis and internal reliability, cluster random sampling method was used. In this way, 16 girls' high schools were randomly selected from among 45 high schools in the two educational areas of Bandar abas city using Excel software. Among these 16 high schools, two high schools were considered for convergent validity, seven high schools for exploratory factor analysis, five high schools for confirmatory factor analysis and two high schools for reliability. Then, in each stage of sampling, including convergent validity, exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis and internal reliability, by referring to these schools, four classes were randomly selected from among the list of classes using Excel software, and then all students in these classes were selected as a sample.
