The KIDSCREEN questionnaires can be used to assess the subjective health and the psychological, mental and social well-being of children and adolescents (HRQoL) between the ages of 8 and 18. The questionnaires can be completed by both healthy and ill children and adolescents themselves (self-assessment). A corresponding parent version is available for parents (proxy assessment). The questionnaires can be used in hospitals, other medical settings and schools by appropriate professionals. They can be used for screening, monitoring and evaluation purposes in national and European health surveys.
A major strength of the KIDSCREEN questionnaires is their simultaneous development in 13 European countries, which allows meaningful cross-cultural comparisons of health-related quality of life.
The KIDSCREEN questionnaires are available in three versions:
The KIDSCREEN questionnaires were developed, translated and adapted into several languages (more infor-mation at Language Versions). Scale values can be calculated for each of the ten dimensions (KID-SCREEN-52). Norm values (T-scores and percentile ranks) stratified by gender and age are available for many countries (more information at Analysis).
