Title : The edo questionnaire (aka PISA Scale)


The most important information about any client or patient is the PHI, (Personal Happiness Index). Like temperature, pulse, or BP, PHI is a true "vital sign" and the tool needed for determining it is the Edo Questionnaire (aka PISA Scale).

The Edo Questionnaire is a twelve-item self-assessment scale that can identify   happy people, unhappy people, very happy, very unhappy, languishing, or flourishing individuals in any given cohort.  PHI ranges from 0.125 on the languishing end to 8.000 on the flourishing end of the scale. The questionnaire has good internal consistency with an alpha value of 0.88. Content validity ratio is 0.85—with ten SME used in calculating the CVR. Test-retest reliability is 0.95. Like all other vital signs, PHI should be routinely determined by every clinician—no matter what specialty.
