Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop and examine the psychometric properties of the Croatian version of the Duke Religion Index (DUREL-hr) and to examine religiousness trend among medical students of different study years. Our results demonstrated high internal consistency (Coefficient Alpha ranging from 0.883 for the total scale to 0.9398 for the intrinsic subscale) of DUREL-hr as well as students’ religiousness results comparable to other studies on the religiousness of the youth in Croatia. DUREL-hr is a reliable and valid instrument suitable to use in Croatian language. Authors encourage studies on the relationship of religiousness and health in Croatia.

Abstract in Croatian

Cilj ovog rada je bio prevesti i istražiti psihometričke osobine hrvatske verzije Duke Religion Indexa (DUREL-hr) te istražiti stanje religioznosti među studentima medicine različitih godina studija. Dobiveni su rezultati pokazali visoki stupanj interne konzistentnosti prevedenog upitnika (koeficijent alfa u rasponu od 0.883 za ukupnu skalu do 0.9398 za intrinzičnu pod-skalu) kao i rezultate stanja religioznosti među studentima medicine koji su usporedivi sa drugim istraživanjima religioznosti mladih u Hrvatskoj. DUREL-hr je pouzdan i valjan instrument, prikladan za korištenje u istraživanjima religioznosti u Hrvatskoj te se potiče njegova primjena u istraživanjima odnosa zdravlja i religioznosti.
