The paper deals with problems arising during processing of data from an epidemiological screening focused on the Minimum Brain Dysfunction complex in children of the first and second form of elementary school. A new rating scale for the screening has been proposed. Its formal properties were analyzed in detail. Nontraditional coding of partial items forming the scale is discussed. Finally, statistical methods used for analysis of associations between the MBD scale and various combinations of aetiopathological variables are reviewed.
