Abstract

A principal components analysis of the Family Environment Scale (FES) was performed on a sample of 113 university undergraduates. Although the FES is extensively used to assess family environment, little research has investigated the empirical combination of FES subscales into composites. Results supported three broad components encompassing the 10 FES subscales; these components replicated previous findings in other samples. The similarity of results across these groups supports generalization of the FES components to college samples.
