  • While there are many instruments available to measure depression, the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS), first created by Yesavage, et al., has been tested and used extensively with the older population.
  • The GDS Long Form is a brief, 30-item questionnaire in which
    participants are asked to respond by answering yes or no in reference to how they felt over the past week. A Short Form GDS consisting of
    15 questions was developed in 1986.
  • Questions from the Long Form GDS which had the highest correlation with depressive symptoms in validation studies were selected for the short version.
  • Of the 15 items, 10 indicated the presence of depression when answered positively, while the rest indicated depression when answered negatively.
  • Scores of 0-4 are considered normal, depending on
    age, education, and complaints; 5-8 indicate mild depression; 9-11 indicate moderate depression; and 12-15 indicate severe depression.
