Past studies have sometimes found that Asian American participants score higher on checklists that measure psychological distress compared to Caucasian American participants. However, studies using diagnostic interviews have not found corresponding elevated rates of mood disorders in Asian American parti- cipants. In the present study, Asian American (n =238) and Caucasian American students (n = 556) completed checklist measures of distress (the Beck Depression Inventory, BDI and the Mood and Behavior Questionnaire, MBQ) and a subsample of students (n =118) received a diagnostic interview. Asian American students had higher BDI scores, but the groups did not differ on either the MBQ, a measure closely tied to DSM criteria for major depression, or on rates of current mood disorders. Elevated BDI scores overestimate rates of mood disorders, particularly in Asian American students.
