The NPV-J consists of 105 mostly positively formulated items and is intended to determine how adolescents between 9 and 15 years of age judge their own behavior. The NPV-J has five subscales; the InadequacyScale data concern scores of 806 adolescents on 28 items measuring inadequacy (one of the subscales). The data are dichotomous (0 = Disagree, 1 = Agree). The original sample consisted of 866 respondents, however 60 all-0s or all-1s response vectors were removed from the data.
