About Daily Stress Inventory

The Daily Stress Inventory was administered to assess participants’ daily level of general stress. The Daily Stress Inventory is a 58-item self-report measure in which participants report whether or not a particular stressor has occurred in the past 24-hour period. If an item is rated as having occurred, the participant indicates an impact score, or the level of stress the event caused them, using a 1 (not stressful) to 7 (caused panic) scale (Brantley, Catz, & Boudreaux, 1997; Brantley, Waggoner, Jones, & Rappaport, 1987).
The Daily Stress Inventory generates three scores (Brantley et al., 1997). The first is a frequency score, which is the total number of events a person has endorsed. The second, an impact score, is a sum of the impact ratings. The third is an average impact rating score and is computed by dividing the impact score by the frequency score.
Psychometric evaluation of the DSI indicated Cronbach’s alphas of .83 and .87 for the frequency and impact scores, respectively (Brantley et al., 1997). To evaluate the validity, the Daily Stress Inventory was correlated with several self-report (e.g., Strait-Trait Anxiety Scale) and physiological (e.g., urine levels of cortisol, vanillylmandelic acid) measures of stress. Strong and significant correlations were reported between the DSI and the other stress measures (Brantley et al., 1997).
