Abstract

The use of Rasch analysis to elicit the structure of depression was investigated. Responses from 102 African-American and white adolescents were evaluated using Rasch analysis. Responses from African-Americans and whites were compared to discern differences in the operational definition of depression for the two groups. How Rasch analysis can be used to increase the understanding of depression for African-Americans and other minority groups is discussed.
