ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study that translated and validated the questionnaire for the Obesity-Related Problems Scale (OP) in the Spanish language. Results revealed that factor analyses and item convergent validity confirmed the homogeneity of the construct while in the OP scale concurrent validity, the majority exceeded the correlation coefficient of 0.40. All correlation coefficients were lower than the internal consistency of the OP scale. The study confirms that this version of the OP scale was translated and adapted correctly in Spanish.
