MetadataShow full item record
ackground and Purpose: To describe the development and testing of a psychometric of Family Structure and Functions (FSF) that measures parents’ ability to provide adolescent reproductive health (ARH). Methods: A cross-sectional study of Indonesian parents (n = 525). Multifactors FSF-ARH were examined using construct validity (exploratory factor analysis [EFA] and confirmatory factor analysis [CFA]) and content validity (Content Validity Index [CVI]). Internal consistency was explored using Cronbach’s α coefficient. Results: EFA revealed nine factors with 26 items accounting for 61.64% of explained variance and CFA validity testing fit for the construct validity of FSF-ARH. The CVI indicated adequate content validity (0.80–0.10) and acceptable internal consistency (0.70). Conclusions: FSF-ARH contains valid, reliable, and robust measures although some subscales performed moderate reliability, establishing the purpose for further research.
