Behavior patterns in nonreferred children: replication of the factor structure of the Missouri Children's Behavior Checklist.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This study provided normative data with regard to the behavior classification system based on the Missouri Children's Behavior Checklist (MCBC) with a sample of 120 nonreferred children. The factor structure of the MCBC replicated with a high degree of congruence. Application of the MCBC behavior classification system provided information on the frequency of problem patterns and problem-free patterns by nonreferred children. Variability in MCBC factor scores and behavior patterns was examined as a function of demographic parameters of gender, race, age, and socioeconomic status.
