Measuring health-related quality of life: psychometric evaluation of the Tunisian version of the SF-12 health survey
TLDR
The findings suggest that theSF-12 appears to be a valid and reliable measure that can be used for measuring of population health status, however, for optimal measurement, modifications to traditional scoring methods for the SF-12 should be considered.
[Psychometric properties of the quality of life assessment instrument: 12-item health survey (SF-12)].
TLDR
The psychometric properties of the SF-12 suggest that this is a sensitive tool to assess the different QL levels, is reliable, has satisfactory internal consistence and is fast and easy to use.
Is the SF-12 version 2 Health Survey a valid and equivalent substitute for the SF-36 version 2 Health Survey for the Chinese?
TLDR
The SF-12v2 was valid, reliable and sensitive for the Chinese and is an equivalent substitute for the SF-36v2 for the summary scales.
Validity of SF-12 summary scores in a Greek general population
TLDR
Evidence on the validity of the Greek version of the 12-item Health Survey is provided and its use in Greek health status studies as a brief, yet valid, alternative to the SF-36 is supported.
Comparing the SF-36 and SF-12 in Psychometric Properties as Measuring Quality of Life among Adolescent in China: a Large Sample Cross-sectional Study
TLDR
Two components (PCS and MCS) measurements of SF-12 appeared to perform at least as well as the SF-36 in cross-sectional settings in adolescence as evidence for the election of instruments of the quality of life (QOL) and decision-making processes to promote the Quality of Life of adolescent.
Using the 12-item Short Form health survey (SF-12) to measure quality of life among older people
  • U. Jakobsson
  • Psychology, Medicine
    Aging clinical and experimental research
  • 2007
TLDR
The instrument generally showed acceptable validity and reliability, except for its factor structure, and new determinants for non-respondents of SF-12 were found, such as type of living conditions, being worried about health, and social network.
The 12-item medical outcomes study short form health survey version 2.0 (SF-12v2): a population-based validation study from Tehran, Iran
TLDR
The findings suggest that the SF-12v2 is a reliable and valid measure of health related quality of life among Iranians and now could be used in future health outcome studies.
Comparing Psychometric Properties of the SF-36 and SF-12 in  Measuring Quality of Life among Adolescents in China: A Large Sample Cross-sectional Study
TLDR
Two component measurements of the Short Form 12 (PCS and MCS) appeared to perform at least as well as theSF-36 in cross-sectional settings in adolescence, but the reliability and validity of 8 domains of the SF-36 were better than those of SF-12.
Validation of the 12 Item Short form Health Survey in a Sample from Region Central Jutland
TLDR
The SF-12 instrument is a reliable and valid measure of health related quality of life among the population of Central Denmark Region and has not been validated in a Danish setting.
Heritability of Health-Related Quality of Life: SF-12 Summary Scores in a Population-Based Nationwide Twin Cohort
TLDR
The heritability of HRQL differs between different age groups, whereas between 65% and 89% could be explained by unique environmental or stochastic factors in the different sex and age groups.

A 12-Item Short-Form Health Survey: construction of scales and preliminary tests of reliability and validity.
TLDR
Twenty cross-sectional and longitudinal tests of empirical validity previously published for the 36-item short-form scales and summary measures were replicated for the 12-item Physical Component Summary and the12-item Mental Component Summary, including comparisons between patient groups known to differ or to change in terms of the presence and seriousness of physical and mental conditions.
Development and Testing of the UK SF-12
TLDR
The SF-12 is able to produce the two summary scales originally developed from the SF-36 with considerable accuracy and yet with far less respondent burden, and may be an instrument of choice where a short generic measure providing summary information on physical and mental health status is required.
Validity of the SF-12 Compared with the SF-36 Health Survey in Pilot Studies of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health
TLDR
The SF- 36, relative to the SF-12, appears to be a more reliable measure for examining changes in health status over time and between groups.
The MOS 36-ltem Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36): I. Conceptual Framework and Item Selection
TLDR
A 36-item short-form survey designed for use in clinical practice and research, health policy evaluations, and general population surveys to survey health status in the Medical Outcomes Study is constructed.
Comparison of methods for the scoring and statistical analysis of SF-36 health profile and summary measures: summary of results from the Medical Outcomes Study.
TLDR
Results suggest that the two summary measures may be useful in most studies and that their empiric validity, relative to the best SF-36 scale, will depend on the application.
The MOS 36‐Item Short‐Form Health Survey (SF‐36): II. Psychometric and Clinical Tests of Validity in Measuring Physical and Mental Health Constructs
TLDR
Cross-sectional data from the Medical Outcomes Study were analyzed to test the validity of the MOS 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) scales as measures of physical and mental health constructs and found the social functioning, vitality, and general health perceptions scales had the most complex interpretation.
The validity and relative precision of MOS short- and long-form health status scales and Dartmouth COOP charts. Results from the Medical Outcomes Study.
TLDR
Variations in RP across methods and concepts were linked to differences in the coarseness of measurement scales, reliability, and content (including the effects of chart illustrations).
