The aim of this study was to explore the properties and utility of the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) stressful life events scale (SLE) in a middle/high income population of black and white women. Using the combined Phase 5-7 PRAMS dataset from 34 states, frequency of endorsement of stressors was examined by both race and income, separately and jointly. In addition, psychometric analyses including reliability and a principal component analysis (PCA) were conducted. These quantitative analyses were followed by a multiple step iterative process to develop a revised SLE for use with middle/high Black and White women.
