Abstract

The psychometric properties of the Sibling Relationship Inventory (SRI; Stocker & McHale, 1992) were examined in two independent samples. One consisted of 206 American children aged 6-12 years, the other of 452 Dutch children aged 5-12 years. A factorial structure with three dimensions (affection, hostility, rivalry) was demonstrated. The internal consistency of the SRI scales proved adequate, even for relatively young children, aged 6-9 years. The test-retest reliability was satisfactory. Findings regarding the convergent and discriminant validity of the SRI were promising, although they need to be extended.
