‘Measurement bias in caregiver-report of early childhood behavior problems across demographic factors in an ECHO-wide diverse sample’
Open Access paper from JCPP Advances
Research and clinical practice rely heavily on caregiver-report measures, such as the Child Behavior Checklist 1.5–5 (CBCL/1.5-5), to gather information about early childhood behavior problems and to screen for child psychopathology. While studies have shown that demographic variables influence caregiver ratings of behavior problems, the extent to which the CBCL/1.5-5 functions equivalently at the item level across diverse samples is unknown.
