ABSTRACT

This study examined the validity and reliability of the Korean version of the coronavirus 2019(COVID-19) Stress Scale(KCSS) in mothers of children aged 0-6 years. The COVID-19 Stress Scale was translated and reverse-translated from its original English into Korean. Data were collected online from 669 participants. The Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were performed to examine the factorial structures of the KCSS. Criterion-related validity and construct validity were obtained through correlation and nomological network analyses. The results of exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses identified 16 items and three factors: infection risk, individual/ family/social interaction change, and job change. The above analyses further confirmed that the KCSS is a reliable and well-constructed measurement-valid and reliable for evaluation. The model had strong convergent and discriminant validity and suited the data well.
