Social Readjustment Rating Scale

The Social Readjustment Rating Scale measures the subjective intensity and length of time necessary to accommodate to a life event, regardless of the desirability of that event. The rating scale consists 43 items. Participants rate each of the items on a sliding scale from 0 to 1000 by comparing the adjustment that they required (or think they would require) to adjust to marriage, a common life-changing event. Marriage is given a baseline value of 500, and your ratings for all questions are judged in comparison to this baseline rating of 500. Thus, responses can be more than, less than, or equal to 500, depending on how you judge the difficulty (or ease) of adjustment for that particular event.
