Reliability and validity
PHQ-9 scores > 10 had a sensitivity of 88% and a specificity of 88% for Major Depressive Disorder. A study involving two different patient populations produced Cronbach alphas of .86 and .89.
Different versions of the PHQ-9 are available, including a version for adolescents (PHQ-A), a version omitting suicide-related questions (PHQ-8), and a version translated to Spanish (PHQ-9 Spanish).
