    Abstract

    Investigated the reliability and validity of the Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS) in a Turkish sample of 264 married individuals (mean age 36.8 yrs). The α coefficient for the DAS was .92 and the computed split-half reliability coefficient was .86. The DAS correlated .82 with the Locke-Wallace Marital Adjustment Test. The original factor structure of the DAS was replicated in the present study. In general, the data indicated that the DAS provides a reliable and valid measure of marital adjustment for a Turkish sample. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
