Of the patients, were drug-free and 30 were treated with major transquilizers at the time of the rating. A principal component analysis with oblique solution and Varimax rotation grouped the items from CPRS into ten factors. These factors were subsequently correlated to the total scores of the SANS.
When a factor showed a positive correlation with the SANS, the individual items within the factor were examined for correlation to both the subscales and the total SANS scores.
Of the 33 items, 5 used in the CPRS showed a positive correlation with the SANS and were therefore considered to represent negative symptomatology in schizophrenia.
