Data on personality characteristics and depressive symptom severity


Dataset from a study by Carrillo et al. (2001), who assessed the extent to which the subscales of the NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-PI; Costa and McCrae 1985) could predict depressive symptomatology, as measured by the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI; Beck, Steer, and Carbin 1988). The NEO-PI assesses five major personality dimensions (Neuroticism, Extraversion, Openness to Experience, Agreeableness and Conscientiousness). Each of these dimensions consist of six specific subtraits (facets). The NEO-PI and BDI were administered to 112 Spanish respondents. Respondents' age in years and sex were also recorded and included in the dataset.
