Abstract

This study investigated the structure of content-based worry of Japanese undergraduates. Two hundred and eight Japanese college students completed a Japanese version of Worry Domain Questionnaire (WDQ: Tallis et al., 1992) along with STAI-Trait. First, in order to assess worry, the Japanese version of WDQ was developed. The scale was found to have good reliability. But factor analysis indicated that the structure of worry on Japa-nese college students might differ from that on people in western culture. Then, the structure of content-based worry was investigated. Cluster analysis revealed that students who were worried about one thing were also worried about other contents, and analysis of variance indicated that students who were worried about many contents showed more anxious than those who were not.
