Primary use / Purpose:
Perceived Stress Scale measures the degree to which situations in one’s life are appraised as stressful

In turn, the perception of stress may influence the pathogenesis of physical disease by causing negative affective states (e.g., feelings of anxiety and depression), which then exert direct effects on physiological processes or behavioral patterns that influence disease risk (Cohen, Janicki-Deverts, & Miller, 2007).

The PSS showed adequate reliability and, as predicted, was correlated with life-event scores, depressive and physical symptomology, utilization of health services, and social anxiety.
