GONCALVES, Marta; BAPTISTA, Makilim Nunes  and  FARCAS, Diana. IPSF: Analysis of internal structure in a sample of Portuguese young adults. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.1, pp. 115-123. ISSN 1677-0471.

The evaluation of the people’s perception of family is fundamental to understanding the degree to which young people are satisfied with this social institution, and in Portugal there is no scale with this function. The objective of this study was to evaluate the psychometric similarities of the initial set of 136 items that was used in the construction of Family Support Perception Inventory (IPSF) in Brazil, having a final version with 42 items, and compare the results to a Portuguese sample of young adults (N=248). For the data processing, we used the same analysis as in Brazil, of the principal components with oblimin rotation. Results showed a number of items and distribution in the three initial categories (affective-consistent, adaptation and autonomy) very close to those found on the Brazilian standardization sample, suggesting similarity both in number and in the constitution of the components in the two cultures
