Epidemiology Surveys

What questionnaire sections were considered "core" to the CPES and therefore asked in all three studies?

Looking through Questionnaire sections and average time to administer section by study table in the Questionnaire Development section of About CPES, it is possible to determine which sections were included in more than one study.
  • Although the Screening section was a core section, only questions SC20 to SC36 were used in all three studies.
  • In the Personality section, only a subset of 10 Personality questions were considered core. The service use questions at the end of each core section also varied by study.
  • There are also questions interspersed throughout the three study instruments that were included in two or all three studies.
You can also view the CPES section list including the diagnostic sections.
