    Abstract:
    The factor structure of the Scale for the Assessment of Negative Symptoms (SANS) was examined in a confirmatory factor analysis that used the LISREL procedure. Four models of negative symptom factors were tested in 130 hospitalized schizophrenic patients. A three-factor model of diminished expression, social dysfunction, and disorganization generated by the authors yielded a superior fit to the data relative to the two-factor model of Liddle (1987b) and a unifactorial severity model. A four-factor model based on the original subscale formulation of the SANS failed to fit the data. © 1992.
