This article describes the development of the Daily Stress Inventory, a measure introduced to provide researchers and clinicians with a psychometrically sound self-report instrument for the daily assessment of the sources and individualized impact of relatively minor stressful events. It was designed to assess sources of stress not typically assessed by major life-event scales. Generalizability coefficients indicate that the scale has significant homogeneity and a useful degree of stability…

The Brief Daily Stressors Screening Tool: An introduction and evaluation.
TLDR
The BDSST is a reliable and valid short instrument for the assessment of experienced general daily stressors in large-scale studies and routine clinical practice and can be used to identify relevant life domains for further investigation.
The Daily Record Form : a brief measure of daily perceived stress and psychosomatic complaints
Abstract The Daily Record Form (DRF) was developed as a brief instrument for measurement of daily perceived stress and psychosomatic complaints. An adult community-based sample completed the DRF in
Development of the Perceived Stress Inventory: A New Questionnaire for Korean Population Surveys
TLDR
The long and short versions of the PSI are valid and reliable tools for measuring perceived stress and offer benefits for stress research using population-based surveys.
The Development, Evaluation, and Validation of a Financial Stress Scale for Undergraduate Students
Financial stress is commonly experienced among college students and is associated with adverse academic, mental health, and physical health outcomes. Surprisingly, no validated measures of financial
Psychometric properties of the weekly stress inventory (WSI): Extension to a patient sample with coronary heart disease
TLDR
The psychometric characteristics of the Weekly Stress Inventory were examined in a sample of medical patients diagnosed with coronary heart disease and indicated that the WSI is an internally consistent and moderately stable measure.
Stress Overload: A New Approach to the Assessment of Stress
  • J. Amirkhan
  • Psychology, Medicine

TLDR
The first wholly empirical development of a new “Stress Overload Scale” is described, which demonstrated criterion validity in predicting who would become sick following a common stressor.
Psychometric Evaluation of the Vietnamese Hemodialysis Stressor Scale
TLDR
A simple structure and preliminary acceptable psychometric properties of the Vietnamese Hemodialysis Stressor Scale were established and can serve as a basis for further studies.
Measuring everyday processes and mechanisms of stress resilience: Development and initial validation of the Sustainability of Living Inventory (SOLI).
TLDR
The Sustainability of Living Inventory, a pool of 46 Likert-type items developed to indicate how regularly respondents performed a variety of specific routines, evidenced excellent goodness-of-fit and demonstrated correlations with established outcome measures independent of common coping and resource variables.
Measuring life event stress in the lives of college students: The Undergraduate Stress Questionnaire (USQ)
TLDR
The development of the Undergraduate Stress Questionnaire (USQ), a life events checklist designed to measure stress among undergraduates, is described and the usefulness of the USQ is discussed in terms of validity, representativeness, adaptability, brevity, and low confounding with negative affect.
Relationship between stress, coping, and postconcussion symptoms in a healthy adult population.
TLDR
The results suggest that persistent symptoms in some individuals with postconcussive syndrome may be due, at least in part, to individual differences in the perceived stress of incurring a mild traumatic brain injury.

TLDR
This article provides both short and long life events questionnaires that add to incidence information the remoteness or recency in time of a given experience, in the weight assignment system that leads to a single presumptive stress score.

Some issues in research on stressful life events.
TLDR
This paper is concerned with the kind of work that is needed in order to provide a more solid scientific foundation for the belief that life stress causes illness and to tackle a major substantive problem that has been largely neglected.
Comparison of two modes of stress measurement: Daily hassles and uplifts versus major life events
TLDR
It was found that the Hassles Scale was a better predictor of concurrent and subsequent psychological symptoms than were the life events scores, and that the scale shared most of the variance in symptoms accounted for by life events.
A psychometric study of life events and social readjustment.
TLDR
The findings of this study seriously challenge the use of differential weights in the measurement of life event changes with respect to the Schedule of Recent Events and the Social Readjustment Rating Scale.
Puzzles in the study of daily hassles

TLDR
A “paradigm shift” requires a different approach to stress measurement, one that takes into account the cognitive activity evaluating the personal significance of transactions, and examines the multiple specific variables of person and environment that influence the appraisal process.

TLDR
It is argued that the latter are of limited relevance to the study of life events as such; here it is more important to develop instruments capable of accuracy, sensitivity and that have some control over possible bias in reporting and rating.

TLDR
This report defines a method which achieves etiologic significance as a necessary but not sufficient cause of illness and accounts in part for the time of onset of disease and provides a quantitative basis for new epidemiological studies of diseases.
