Abstract

The reliability of the full and abridged version of AUDIT questionnaire was studied in a sample of respondents from Moscow and St. Petersburg (n = 1538). It was shown that Cronbach's а for the full version is equal to 0,888 and for abridged, 3-item version (AUDIT-C) — 0,788. Standard error of measurement (SEM) was relatively high for AUDIT-C and comprised 21% of the full range of values. In comparison for the full AUDIT SEMwas only 12% of the range. Comparison of the dichotomized versions of the questionnaires showd that agreement was good but not excellent (Cohen's к = 0,736, 95%CI = 0,701-0,771). In the same time one question(AUDIT-3) has almost as good agreement with results of full questionnaire as AUDIT-C (к = 0,641, 95%CI = 0,600-0,681). taking into account lower reliability of AUDIT-C and possibility of significant disagreementit is recommended to use full version of AUDIT and in case of acute time shortage — one question AUDIT-3.
