Validation of the Fatigue Severity Scale in general population of Mexico City

Reliable and valid ways to measure fatigue are required in order to determine its prevalence and consequences. One of the methods widely used to measure fatigue is the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS; Krupp, LaRocca, Muir-Nash, & Steinberg, 1989). Thus, the purpose of this study was to validate...

One of the methods widely used to measure fatigue is the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS; Krupp, LaRocca, Muir-Nash, & Steinberg, 1989). Thus, the purpose of this study was to validate this scale psychometrically in a culturally relevant manner, to identify whether its structure is the most appropriate through a confirmatory factor analysis, and to test the invariance by sex. Two groups of participants, inhabitants of Mexico City, were included in the present study, 150 for validation studies, and 220 for confirmatory factor analysis and invariance test studies. A structure with six items, ade-quate reliability (α = .93), goodness of fit [χ2(9) = 12.56, p = .183; CF1 = .99; RMSEA = .05] and invariance by sex was found. So, it is concluded that FSS is a reliable and valid measure of fatigue. Para conocer la prevalencia y las consecuencias de la fatiga se necesitan formas confiables y válidas para medirla. Una de las escalas más usadas es la Escala de Gravedad de Fatiga (FSS; Krupp, LaRocca, Muir-Nash, & Steinberg, 1989), por lo que el propósito de este trabajo fue validar esta escala psicométricamente de manera culturalmente relevante, identificar si su estructura es la más adecuada a través de un análisis factorial confirmatorio y comprobar la invarianza factorial por sexo. Se trabajó con dos grupos de participantes, 150 habitantes de la Ciudad de México para la validación y 220 habitantes de la Ciudad de México para el análisis factorial confirmatorio y prueba de invarianza. Se encontró una estructura con seis reactivos, adecuada confiabilidad (α = .93) correcto ajuste [X2 (9) = 12.56, p = .183; CF1 = .99; RMSEA = .05] e invarianza por sexo, por lo que se concluye que la Escala de Gravedad de Fatiga es una medida confiable y válida.
