Abstract


The purpose of the study was to assess the reliability and validity of self report Indigenous Death anxiety scale (IDAS). The Urdu version of scale was administered on 224 Pakistani Muslim population .Their age ranged from 16 to 46 years and above. Test –retest reliability for 15 –days interval showed good indices of (r=.81, p<.01). The convergent validity of present scale with Templer’s Death anxiety scale (r=.60, p < .01) and discriminant validity of present scale with Revised Life Orientation Test (r= - .61, p < .01) demonstrated significant values. We concluded that that present scale is a cultural specific, reliable and valid tool for measuring death anxiety.
