          Abstract

          O objetivo deste estudo foi adaptar e avaliar a estrutura fatorial do QSG-12 - Questionário de Saúde Geral. Tal questionário mensura deteriorações menores em saúde mental e é largamente utilizado em estudos ocupacionais. O presente estudo foi desenvolvido com amostras de bancários (N=152), profissionais de saúde (N=136) e desempregados (N=158) em Natal-RN. Os resultados corroboram estudos anteriores, apontando a solução unifatorial como a mais recomendada, mas também mostrou a viabilidade de utilizar solução bifatorial. Encontraram-se diferenças significativas do nível de deterioração mental por situação e por categoria ocupacional. Os resultados encontrados reforçam as qualidades psicométricas do questionário, indicando que sua aplicabilidade em estudos ocupacionais é generalizável para o contexto local.

          The present study was aimed to adapt and to assess the factor structure of the GHQ-12 - General Health Questionnaire. This questionnaire measures small amounts of deterioration in mental health through behavioral indexes and it is used broadly in occupational studies. This study was developed with samples of bank workers (N=152), health professionals (N=136) and unemployed (N=158) in Natal, Brazil. The results corroborated previous studies, showing that the one-factor solution represents the best solution but it also showed the validity of using the two factors solution. Significant differences of the mental deterioration level for situation and for occupational category were found. The results showed that the questionnaire has sound psychometric properties and that its use in occupational studies may be generalized for the local context.
