HIDALGO-RASMUSSEN, Carlos Alejandro; JAVIER-JUAREZ, Sandra Paola; CHAVEZ-FLORES, Yolanda Viridiana  and  ZURITA-AGUILAR, Kathia Anahí. Cross-cultural adaptation of the Cyber Dating Abuse Questionnaire (CDAQ) for young Mexican. Suma Psicol. [online]. 2022, vol.29, n.2, pp.138-145.  Epub May 08, 2023. ISSN 0121-4381.


Cyber dating abuse is a public health problem that requires valid and reliable evaluations. The objective of this study was to cross-culturally adapt and evaluate the psychometric properties of the Cyber Dating Abuse Questionnaire (CDAQ) for Mexican youth.


1158 young students from 18 to 24 years old participated, 62.9 % were women. In the verification of the linguistic equivalence phase, four words from the original version in Spanish were adapted.


Acceptable fit indices were found in the confirmatory factor analysis, in addition, convergent and discriminant validity of the factors was found, except between the factors of victimization and perpetration of Direct Aggression. Evidence of divergent validity was found with quality of life and convergence with risk behaviors. Total reliability was greater than .87.


The findings suggest that CDAQ could be a useful questionnaire to assess cyber dating abuse among young Mexicans.
