Abstract

The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) is an effective instrument for measuring the quality of sleep in older adults. In this study, we used Rasch analysis to validate the items of the revised PSQI (SC_PSQI) that contribute to a single construct. A total of 3,742 workers agreed to participate in this study. Both the appropriateness of the scoring rubrics and the unidimensionality of the SC_PSQI scale were investigated. All nine items fit the model's expectations rather well. These results indicate that the SC_PSQI with a 0 to 2 scoring scale can be used as a unidimensionality to assess sleep quality.
