These studies shows that scores for the SF domains obtained in adult populations presented high reliability and good criterion validity when compared to other instruments that assess the quality of life. The analysis of SF data coming from a probabilistic sample of Brazilian households showed that the obtained scales meet the minimum psychometric standards required for quality of data, grading conjectures, reliability and validity of the instrument, and that these reproduce the physical and mental hypothetical dimensions.
The relationship standards between factors and scales are predictive of their associations with external factors of physical and mental health 16 Psychometric evaluation of the SF v.

Therefore, the objective of this article was to present the descriptive measures of the scale scores and measures composing the SF according to age and age group obtained in a probabilistic sample of Brazilian households. Materials and Methods The sample is entirely probabilistic and stratified in multiple stages, which allows accurate inferences of population parameters.

The sample was in accordance with a probabilistic procedure in three stages, in which at first the cities were selected, followed by the census sectors inside the cities and, finally, the households inside the sectors. Basic information about schooling and work was collected for all of the individuals aged 10 years old or more.
Questions concern the four weeks prior to the interview 18 Acta Reumatol Port ; The eight SF scales are: physical functioning 10 items , role-physical 4 items , bodily pain 2 items , general health 5 items , vitality 4 items , social functioning 2 items , role-emotional 3 items and mental health 5 items , and there are two summary measures - physical health and mental health.
The procedures to calculate scores were in accordance with the recommendations of the creators of SF 19 Lincoln RI: QualityMetric; For each scale of SF, the following measures were taken: mean, respective confidence interval, ground and ceiling effect.
The ground and ceiling effects are the percentage of subjects who had the lowest score - zero, or the highest score - one hundred - in each of the eight domains, respectively.
The adopted limiting values for the ground effect were scores lower than Data of the heads of families and spouses were weighted to represent the total Brazilian population in the analyses conducted with SPSS v. The size of the sample obtained in this study meets the criteria established by the International Quality of Life Assessment IQOLA project for the comparison between genders and age groups 17 The pair of answers that presented more inconsistency 3.
The distribution of items demonstrated that all of the categories were used by the respondents, with inclination towards the most favorable health status among male participants, aged less than 40 years old, with higher schooling. The age-standardized scores for the eight scale domains and the two components physical and mental health of the SF ranged according to age, being higher among the younger age groups and decreasing with age Table 1.
Even though several domains had shown ceiling effect Thumbnail Table 1 Descriptive measures of the standardized scores for the eight domains of the item Short Form and for the two summary measures physical and mental health of the Brazilian population by age groups. As expected, mean scores of Brazilian men and women ranged according to age and gender Tables 2 and 3.
Among men, vitality in the younger age groups and general health in the other age groups presented with the lowest values.
Among women, the scores of mental health in the age groups younger than 35 years old, as well as functional capacity, in age groups older than 64 years old, showed the lowest values. As in the general sample, several domains exhibited strong ceiling effect Men presented higher scores in relation to women for all of the domains and the two summary measures.
Even though the confidence intervals are not superposed for any of the domains or summary measures, the magnitude of the difference should be considered. Except for general health and physical and mental health, all of the other domains had more than five points of difference, which is considered to be clinically and socially significant.
