Little attention is paid to the factorial structure of (the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale, CES-D) among Chinese older adults. This study examined the latent structure of the short-form and full scale CES-D in older adults in China. A sample of 3770 older adults aged over 65 was derived from two waves of China Family Panel Studies. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was employed to analyze the psychometric properties of the CES-D. The results of CFA showed that the four-factor model for the full scale and the three-factor model for the short-form scale demonstrated superior fit to other models. Thus, our findings provide evidence of acceptable measurement properties of the CES-D in Chinese older adults.
