Normative Data on the Beck Depression Inventory--Second Edition (BDI-II) in College Students.
J Clin Psychol 2015; 71(9):898-907JC

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

This study was conducted to provide normative data on the Beck Depression Inventory--Second Edition (BDI-II) in college students.

METHOD

Data were obtained from 15,233 college students drawn from 17 universities in the United States, weighted to match the gender and race/ethnicity of enrollment in degree-granting institutions.

RESULTS

Descriptive statistics, point prevalence of individuals exceeding cutoff scores, and mean differences by gender and race/ethnicity were provided. Because the distribution of BDI-II scores was not normal, percentile ranks for raw scores were provided for the total sample and separately by gender and race/ethnicity for the total sample and by race/ethnicity for men and women. Normative data were used to calculate the Reliable Change Index on the BDI-II for college students.

CONCLUSION

Because the distribution of BDI-II scores demonstrated significant skewness and non-normal kurtosis, percentile ranks are important to consider in interpreting scores on the measure, in addition to descriptive statistics.
