BAPTISTA, Makilim Nunes; CUNHA, Felipe Augusto  and  MARQUES, Maria Andreia da Nóbrega. Evidence of the internal structure of the Baptista Depression Scale: Elderly Version (EBADEP-ID). Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.1, pp. 76-85. ISSN 1982-1247.

The objective of the present study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the Depression-Elderly Baptista Scale (EBADEP-ID). A total of 244 elderly people from the state of Piauí, with no diagnosis of depression, ranging in age from 60 to 96 years (M = 68.85, SD = 9.19), 67.9% of them female. The main results indicated that of the 30 initial items the scale was reduced to a shorter version of 15 items. The scale was better suited to a two-factor solution, both presenting adequate values of Cronbach’s alpha (F1: 0.90 and F2: 0.88). Finally, it is concluded that EBADEP-ID has demonstrated evidence of acceptable internal structure validity.
