BACKGROUND Measurement non-invariance of the Fagerstrom test for nicotine dependence (FTND) across demographic groups could significantly bias group comparisons and screening for recruitment into treatment and genetic studies. Here clinically meaningful bias in the FTND across European-American and African-American men and women was assessed by: (1) testing measurement invariance; (2) estimating effect sizes of non-invariance; and (3) assessing impact of adjusting for bias on the association… CONTINUE READING
