Abstract

This paper describes the rationale and methods entailed in developing the Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology (IDS) in both clinician-rated (IDS-C) and self-reported (IDS-SR) formats. Psychometric features of the both the IDS-C and IDS-SR are presented. These scales are compared to the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HRSD) in the detection of symptom change in patients with major depressive (n - 184) or bipolar disorder (n= 141). The face validity and established psychometric features of the IDS-C and IDS-SR indicate that either may be useful in detecting symptom change, as well as in detecting residual symptoms in depressed patients. Further efforts to shorten each measure are indicated.
