Abstract

Recent developments suggest that the focus of interest in devising reliable data-collection methods may be shifting towards the measurement of psychopathology rather than diagnostic status. Applications of item-response theory are also noted, but they have yet to be widely applied in psychiatry and psychopathology. An advancement in the study of life events is noted, in which the type of event rather than a person's health status is taken as the index point.
