Abstract

The Composite International Diagnostic Interview, or CIDI, is a fully structured interview that maps the symptoms elicited during the interview onto DSM-IV and ICD-10 diagnostic criteria and reports whether the diagnostic criteria are satisfied--nothing more, nothing less. The inter-rater reliability has been demonstrated to be excellent, the test-retest reliability good, and the validity has been demonstrated to be good, given the methodological constraints. The CIDI is available in lifetime and 12-month versions, and in both paper-and-pencil and computer-administered forms. The latter version is suitable for self-administration in cooperative subjects. The CIDI is available in many languages. It is supported by ten centres around the world, which conduct regular training programmes for interviewers. The training programmes are standardised and the training materials are comprehensive. The data from the CIDI is entered into standard data entry and scoring programmes that give as output the diagnostic criteria satisfied. The interviews, the training materials, and the scoring programmes are copyright by the World Health Organization (WHO) and are supervised by an advisory committee on behalf of WHO. That committee and the training centres welcome enquiries from researchers and clinicians who are interested in using the CIDI.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 12. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 February 2013.
All research outputs
#624,179
of 7,763,031 outputs
Outputs from Social Psychiatry & Psychiatric Epidemiology
#133
of 1,142 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#31,903
of 246,173 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Social Psychiatry & Psychiatric Epidemiology
#4
of 23 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,763,031 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 91st percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,142 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.9. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 246,173 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 23 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
