CAMURCA CIDADE, Elívia; ESMERALDO FILHO, Carlos Eduardo; MOURA JUNIOR, James Ferreira  y  MORAIS XIMENES, Verônica. Fatalism Multidimensional Scale: Validation of Version for Rural Poverty Contexts. Rev. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.2, pp.23-35. ISSN 0716-8039.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5354/0719-0581.2019.52317.

In rural poverty contexts, local problems accentuate feelings of impotence and uncertainty, being relevant the development of instruments to investigate fatalism, which interferes with health behaviors and satisfaction with life. The study aims to validate a reduced version of the Multidimensional Fatalism Scale (MFE), originally available in Spanish and English, for Brazilian populations living in rural poverty. 1,318 residents of the rural areas of the North, Northeast and South of Brazil participated. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) were performed to verify the model's ability to represent the construct. The results presented a factorial structure with reduction of two factors when compared to the original scale, according to the CFA. The adapted scale demonstrated good measurement and reliability parameters and may be used to measure fatalism in the context of rural poverty in Brazil.

Palabras clave : poverty; fatalism; factor analysis; rural environments; test validity.
