This study evaluated the factor structure, reliability, & validity of the Positive & Negative Suicide Ideation inventory (PANSI) in sample of high-school youths. 217 youth completed the inventory & other self-report instruments. Results of the confirmatory factor analyses supported adequate fit of the 2-factor oblique model to the sample data. Both factor scales attained adequate levels of reliabiity. No gender difference were noted in responses to the scales. Logistic-regression analyses were used to evaluate the contributions of scale scores to differentiate between the study groups. (81 refs.)
