Title

Depression

Description

The Depression module of the Composite International Diagnostic Interview (UM-CIDI) short form was adapted and used with the primary caregiver (PC) of subjects to obtain information about depressive symptoms experienced by the PC during the past year. The Depression instrument differed from the Dysthymia instrument in that the Depression instrument asked about feelings of sadness or depression for two weeks or more in a row whereas the Dysthymia instrument focused on feelings of sadness or depression most of the time.

WAVE 2: The Depression Instrument (PDF 2.4MB) was adapted from the short form of the UM-CIDI and obtained information about depressive symptoms experienced by the primary caregiver during the past year. It was administered to subjects' primary caregivers for Cohorts 0 to 15.

WAVE 3: The Depression Instrument (PDF 5.0MB) was adapted from the short form of the UM-CIDI and obtained information about depressive symptoms experienced by the respondent during the past year. It was administered to subjects' primary caregivers for Cohorts 0 to 15 and to subjects for Cohort 18.
