Description

Hello,

I am using the self-esteem measure from the youth questionnaire. There are 8 items - they seem to be from the Rosenberg self-esteem scale which typically has 10 items. My questions:
- Are these 8 items indeed taken from the Rosenberg self-esteem scale?
- What was the reason/justification to use only 8 (not 10) items?
- Is the 8-item measure valid/reliable?
Thank you very much in advance for your help!

Best wishes,
Marie

PS I see someone else raised the same issue before (https://iserredex.essex.ac.uk/support/issues/853), but I am not quite satisfied with the answer given, as it only says the items were also used in the BHPS (where they seem to have used 9 items, not 8).
