Dear Visitors:
Federal funding for this website ended in 2003, therefore few materials have been added since that time. Fortunately, there is continued interest in culturally and appropriate materials, curriculum, and programs. Because of this, we have allowed this site to remain as an archive. Please feel free to use this site, but recognize that it is no longer current.

Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS)

Spanler, G. B. (1986, 1989). Dyadic Adjustment Scale. North Tonawanda, NY: Multi-health Systems, Inc.

DAS is a 32-item scale assessing quality of the relationship between mates. Mates are asked to indicate the approximate extent of agreement or disagreement in fifteen areas (e.g., family finances, household tasks). They are asked to indicate how often they engage in behavior in seven areas (e.g., confiding in mate, quarreling with mate), how often they do things together, how recently they have been too tired for sex, how happy the relationship is, and how they feel about the future of the relationship.

No information is available at this time about the time required to administer and create a profile. No information is available about the norming population.
