Confusion, Hubbub, and Order Scale (CHAOS)

Short Description: Children growing up in chaotic homes, i.e. homes characterized by noise, crowding, and a lack of structure are more likely to develop behavioral and other problems. The CHAOS module in the SOEP-IS allows the replication and extension of previous results on the association of home chaos with child development outcomes.

Methodological Details: Six self-report items. Examples include “You can’t hear yourself think in our home.” and “The atmosphere in our home is calm.”
