description This article examines the psychometric properties of the Flourishing Scale in Puerto Rico. Three studies were carried out with this purpose. The first study, of 665 partic-ipants, analyzed the reliability and factorial structure of the scales. The second study, of 821 participants, carried out a confirmatory factorial analysis. The third study, of 342 Puerto Rican women, calculated the convergent and diver-gent validity of the scales with other measures of wellbeing and depression. The results of the studies showed adequate psychometric properties in the scale. The reliability index of the scale was of .95. The variance in the exploratory factorial analysis was 65.35%. The results confirmed that the scale has a one-dimensional structure. The eight items complied with the criteria of discrimination. Convergent and discriminant validity analyses were performed by eval-uating correlation between flourishing, satisfaction with life and depression, obtaining statistically significant values. These results suggest that the Flourishing Scale has the po-tential to measure this construct among Puerto Rican adults.
