Term Description

The total score for the General Well Being Schedule (GWB) 18-item, self-administered questionnaire. The first 14 questions use 6-point response scales representing intensity or frequency, where each response is assigned a numeric score from 0 to 5 (in the original GWB Schedule) or 1 to 6 (in some alternate versions). The remaining four questions use 0-10 rating scales defined by adjectives at each end. The polarity of items 1, 3, 6, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, and 16 is reversed for scoring, and if using the original GWB Schedule, scores within each subscale are added together for a total score. If the first 14 questions are scored using the alternate 1 to 6 scoring then 14 is substracted from the total. Regardless of the scoring system used, the total score ranges from 0-110. Lower scores reflect distress and higher scores reflect positive well-being. PMID: 610049
