The factor structure of the Negative Symptom Assessment (NSA), a standardized negative symptoms rating scale, was systematically evaluated in a group of 223 inpatients with schizophrenia. Confirmatory factor analyses found that a six-factor model best described the NSA. More specifically, the domains of Communication, Emotion/Affect, Social Involvement, Motivation, Gross Cognition, and Retardation characterized the rating scale. This latent structure of the NSA is consistent with a multidimensional conceptualization of negative symptoms.
