Measuring perceived social support: psychometric properties of the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS) in a sample of university students - The aim of this study was to analyze the psychometric properties of the Italian version of the Multidimensional Scale of Social Support (MSPSS), to verify if and in what way the instrument can be applied to an Italian context as well. The sample was composed of 383 university students (median age = 22.41, SD = 2.89). Descriptive statistics, Cronbach’s a coefficient and the Confirmative Factor Analysis (CFA) were performed.
