ORNELAS, Martha; GASTELUM, Gabriel; LOPEZ-WALLE, Jeanette  y  RODRIGUEZ-VILLALOBOS, Judith M. Factorial Structure of the Anxiety Aging Scale of Lasher and Faulkender in Mexican University Students. Form. Univ. [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.2, pp.73-80. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062016000200008.

In the present study the possibility of replicate the psychometric results proposed by Lasher and Faulkender for Anxiety Aging Scale, in a group of Mexican university students. The total sample comprised 825 participants with a mean age of 20.8 years. All of them were male students of the majors in Physical Education and in Human Motricity offered at the Autonomous University of Chihuahua in Mexico. The factorial structure of the questionnaire was analyzed using confirmatory factor analysis. The psychometric analysis showed that a tetra-factorial structure was adequate since through statistic criteria it showed adequate indicators of reliability and validity. The four factors were: (i) fear of old people; (ii) physical appearance; (iii) fear of losses; and (iv) psychological concerns. In addition to this, factor analysis conducted with subsamples indicated the presence of strong evidence of factor structure stability.
