Concordance of the MCMI-II, the MMPI, and Axis I discharge diagnosis in psychiatric inpatients



Concordance of the MCMI-II, the MMPI, and Axis I discharge diagnosis in psychiatric inpatients



Journal of Personality Assessment 58(3): 580-590



Discriminant functions of the MMPI and the MCMI-II were compared in a sample of 166 hospitalized psychiatric patients with discharge diagnoses of affective disorder (63), schizophrenia (26), substance abuse (35), and other disorders (42). Of special interest was the comparative diagnostic utility of the two instruments in regards to DSM-III-R Axis I diagnoses. Both tests performed reasonably well in the discriminant function analyses; however, the MCMI-II achieved a somewhat superior overall hit rate with this sample of inpatients (79% to 68%). This difference was tied to greater accuracy of the MCMI-II for identifying the affective disorders group.
