This analysis applies methods of screening to the problem of psychosis. A probability sample of 810 individuals from the Eastern Baltimore Mental Health Survey was interviewed in the self-report modality with the Diagnostic Interview Schedule and shortly thereafter by a psychiatrist. It is shown that a configuration of responses in the self-report modality can screen moderately well for psychosis, as measured by psychiatrists in the clinical modality.
