Objectives. To provide non‐clinical normative data for the Novaco Anger Scale. To identify the ability of the scale to discriminate between clinical and non‐clinical populations. Design. Postal survey of individuals from a non‐clinical sample. Method. A non‐clinical sample of 212 NHS employees was sent a questionnaire pack, including the Novaco Anger Scale. A clinical sample of 58 outpatient angermanagement referrals was identified from a retrospective case‐note analysis. Results. Descriptive data are presented for both samples. t‐score conversions are provided, based on the non‐clinical data. Results from a discriminant function analysis demonstrated that the Novaco Anger Scale classified participants as clinical or non‐clinical with 94 accuracy. Conclusion. From this study it appears that the Novaco Anger Scale is able to discriminate between clinical and non‐clinical populations. These data offer further support to the validity of the Novaco Anger Scale and its use in clinical assessment.
