The maximum score of the Zung SDS is 80. Lower scores are better. The Zung SelfRating Depression
Scale(ZungSDS)(Zung1965)wasdevelopedasaselfratedmeasureofdepressionseverity.Theauthor
intended the scale to be a quick and simple measure of symptoms. Items were selected to assess
affective,cognitive,behavioural,andphysiologicalaspectsofdepressiononthebasisofthediagnostic
criteriafordepressionandstudiesavailableatthetime(1965).

Although most DSMIV symptom criteria are included, no items cover symptoms more common in
atypical depressions, such as increased appetite (hyperphagia), weight gain, or sleeping to excess
(hypersomnia). A revised version in the Early Clinical Drug Evaluation Program (ECDEU) manual (Guy,
1976)changedthewordingoftwoitems,addedaratingof0=noneofthetime,andchangedthetime
