Title: Psychometric testing of the revised Beliefs about Personal Weight Survey. Agency: Sigma Theta Tau Award (June 2014). PI: Stephanie Pickett
The PI’s prior research identified four underlying dimensions in the Beliefs about Personal Weight Survey. This study developed new survey questions that matched the factor results. The new questionnaire was administered to a sample of 200 African American women. It is expected that a brief four-factor instrument will be predictive of BMI and eating behaviors.
