|Abstract: ||A scale of impact for 95 life change events was
determined from a sample of 4 ethnic groups. Fifty-one
of these events fit a Rasch model and had the
same impact in all four groups (sample free item
calibration). The differences among the groups were
characterized by individual parameters called
"stabilities." A second study was performed that
estimated a linear transformation of the impacts to
yield an impact scale with ratio properties.|
