PATIENTS select numbers to indicate the degree to which they would avoid particular places or situations because of discomfort or anxiety. The total score provides a measure of the severity of agoraphobia.
The scoring is in the range of 1-5 item scale:
|3||Avoid About Half the Time|
|4||Avoid Most of the Time|
Each situation is rated twice to reflect the degree that the situation is avoided:
PATIENTS may skip items that are irrelevant to their lifestyles; however, it is recommended that the scale be considered invalid for individuals who skip more than five items.
The AGORAPHOBIA MOBILITY INVENTORY SCORE (WHEN ACCOMPANIED) is scored by calculating the average avoidance rating across all situations for the ‘When alone’ and ‘When accompanied’ scales. For the measure related to ‘When alone’, a cut-off score above an item average of 2.3 should be applied.
