whiirs Women's Health Initiative Insomnia Rating Scale: Total score

Calculated - The Women's Health Initiative Insomnia Rating Scale (WHIIRS) has 5 items. Each item is scored on a 5 point scale (from 0-4). The total score is the sum of all five items ranging from 0 to 20. Higher score indicates more severe insomnia. A score of 9 or higher is considered clinically significant insomnia. Levine et al.(2003)

The score is calculated from non-missing values for any of the following five items: SLEA4, SLEA5, SLEA6, SLEA7 and SLEA11. The original items range from 0 to 4 and the total score from 0 to 20. In HCHS/SOL, SLEA form the scoring for questions 4 to 7 each ranged from 1 to 5 so 1 should be subtracted from each of these items to obtain the score for use in calculating WHIIRS.
