The Holmes-Rahe Stress Inventory


Mark down the point value of each of these life events that has happened to you during the previous year. Then, add up all of your points to calculate your final score.


What does your score mean?

150 points or less l a relatively low amount of life change and a low susceptibility to stress-induced health breakdown.

150-300 points l 50% chance of health breakdown in the next 2 years.

300 points or more l 80% chance of health breakdown in the next 2 years, according to the Holmes-Rahe statistical predication model.
