Measurement properties and implications of the brief resilicience scale in healthy workers

Measurement properties and implications of the brief resilicience scale in healthy workers

Samenvatting

Objectives: The aim of this study was to study measurement properties of the Dutch
Language Version of the Brief Resilience Scale (BRS-DLV) in blue and white collar
workers employed at multiple companies and to compare the validity and factor
structure to other language versions.
Methods: Workers (n = 1023) were assessed during a cross-sectional health surveillance.
Construct validity was tested with exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses
(EFA and CFA) and hypothesis testing. Reliability was tested with Cronbach 's alpha.
Results: A two-factor structure of the BRS-DLV had good model fit in both EFA
and CFA, which could be explained by difficulties of workers with reversed order
items. After excluding these inconsistent answering patterns, a one-factor structure
showed good model fit resembling the original BRS (χ2 = 16.5; CFI & TLI = 0.99;
SRMR = 0.02;RMSEA = 0.04). Internal consitency is sufficient (Cronbach 's
α = 0.78). All five hypotheses were confirmed, suggesting construct validity.
Conclusions: Reliability of the BRS-DLV is sufficient and there is evidence of construct
validity. Inconsistent answering, however, caused problems in interpretation
and factor structure of the BRS-DLV. This can be easily detected and handled because
item 2, 4 and 6 are in reversed order. Other language versions differ in factor
structure, most likely because systematic errors are not corrected for. To collect valid
data, it is advised to be aware of inconsistent answering of respondents.
