Two-, three-, and four-factor models of the PCL-R are reviewed, and a traditional confirmatory factor analysis is conducted on a sample of 135 female insanity acquittees from a forensic state hospital.

Confirmatory factor analysis was conducted using principal axis factoring. Loadings greater than .40 were retained. Reliability analysis using alpha coefficients was conducted to examine inter-item correlations and internal consistency of each factor model with ≥.70 as a cutoff for reliable factor scales. A 2-factor model was found to be the best fit with the sample in the study.

Results also indicated higher Factor 2 scores (M=8) than Factor 1 ( M=6), and significantly low total PCL-R scores ( M=16) in comparison to men. A discussion of clinical implications of the PCL-Rs utility within female samples is reviewed along with suggestions for future research.
