About Social Readjustment Rating Scale

Social Readjustment Rating Scale (SRRS). It was developed by Holmes and Rahe (1967) and consists of 43 common lifetime events. The participant is asked to report which life events on the given list occurred in past years prior to an assigned date. For each life event, a value or Life Change Score (LCS) is assigned which reflects the severity of self-perceived stress the event caused in the participants. Total LCS is obtained by adding LCS corresponding to events that occurred in the past life of the respondent. LCS of 150 or less indicates a low level of stress and a 30% chance of developing stress-related disorders, 150-299 suggests 50% chances, while 300 plus suggest high levels of stress and 80% chances of getting sick in near future. If an event has occurred or is expected to occur more than once in near future then the assigned score is multiplied by the frequency of the event.
