About Family Affluence Scale-II
Family affluence scale II (FAS II; Currie et al, 2004). It was used to assess the family wealth of the participants and was originally developed to measure socioeconomic inequalities and their relationship with adolescents’ health.
This measure is composed of four items. By summing up the response on these four items a composite score is generated ranging from 0 to 9. Participants can then be categorized into three family affluence groups by FAS II scores: high (7–9 points), medium (4–6) and low (0–3). The psychometric properties of FAS II are good supporting its use as a self-report measure of material wealth among adolescents (Ravens-Sieberer et al., 2009; Torshieum, Currie, Boyce, & Samdal, 2006; Currie et al, 2008).
It has been used in numerous studies to examine health inequalities within and across countries (Torsheim et al., 2004, 2006) and has shown a strong agreement with parent reports of material wealth (Currie et al., 2008) and has good criterion validity against country’s GDP across 25 countries (Boyce, Torsheim, Currie, & Zambon, 2006). FAS II was translated into Urdu in the present study for use with the Pakistani population.
