Background: Fear is an important emotion that can be adaptive to promote security and survival or to be negatively maladaptive with effect on the quality of life. The aim of the present study was extracting psychometrics features and factor structure of the Fear Survey Schedule for Children—revised in sample of Iranian children and adolescents.


Methods: The present study included the FSSC-R scores for 661 Iranian students (321 boys & 340 girls) in primary, guidance and high school sections. Student’s ages was 8 to 18 years (mean: 12.74 and the standard deviation: 2.95). Participants were selected using cluster sampling of schools in Tabriz and filled


FSSC-R To investigate the factor structure, exploration method and principal components analysis with varimax rotation were used.


Results: Seven-factor solution was calculated for the 37.9% of the total variance and items represented the factors better than other solutions. Therefore, seven-factor solution which was more appropriate than 5 and 6 factor solutions was chosen. Reliability coefficient by internal consistency (Kronbach's alpha coefficient), was 0.93.


Conclusions: The results showed that the FSSC-R is a reliable instrument. Fear intensity is reduced with increasing age. Fear intensity is decreased in boys and increased in girls with increasing age.
