Social Readjustment Rating Scale

The Social Readjustment Rating Scale, also known as Holmes and Rahe Scale, was created in 1967 as a means of measuring personal stress levels. This scale uses a list of 43 stressful life events, and a numerical score for the power of each event, and asks the user to indicate how many of these events have occurred in their life in the previous 12 months. When finished the values of all events noted are added up. A score of 300+ indicates an 80% chance of the individual suffering from a significant level of stress.
