Bergen Shopping Addiction Scale
[ no addiction ]
Higher scores indicate higher levels of shopping addiction.
The study demonstrated that the BSAS has good psychometrics, structure, content, convergent validity, and discriminative validity, which should encourage researchers to consider using it in epidemiological studies and treatment settings. Although this study did not attempt any cut-off evaluation for classification of shopping addicts, such classification could be conducted using traditional cut-off approaches. A tentative cut-off score for BSAS may involve the scoring of 3 («agree») or 4 («completely agree») on at least four of the seven items. However, this should be investigated further.
