AKERMAN, Laila  and  BORSA, Juliane Callegaro. Evidence of validity for the observer-report version of the Family Climate Inventory in a sample of caregivers of children. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.1, pp. 10-17. ISSN 1677-0471.

The family climate refers to the perception of family relationship characteristics by its members. The present study aimed to investigate the evidence of validity of the observer-report version of the Family Climate Inventory based on its internal structure. A total of 722 caregivers (76.3% women) of children (52.4% girls) aged between 8 and 12 years (Mage = 9.17, SD = 1.59) participated in the study. Exploratory factor analysis indicated adequate psychometric properties (Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin [KMO] = 0.90049; Bartlett's test of sphericity = 5850.8; df = 231; p <0.001; RMSEA= 0.058; NNFI = 0.971; WRMR= 0.0537) and a two factor solution for the observer-report version. The factors Positive Family Climate and Negative Family Climate are consistent with the literature on family climate.
