Name: Hopelessness Data

 

Abstract: This dataset looked at 70 participants who experienced a heart attack or other acute cardiovascular condition and subsequently enrolled in the cardiac rehabilitation program at Holland Hospital.This dataset explores the psychological construct ďhopelessnessĒ (a psychological state which has no expectation of good in the future) in cardiac rehabilitation patients.Specifically, the dataset explores changes in hopelessness levels over time (1-2 weeks after heart attack, 7-8 after and 6 months after) and also attempts to distinguish between state and trait hopelessness.State hopelessness would be hopelessness that is a temporary state of mind and might be caused by the heart attack/cardiac event.Trait hopelessness is a permanent state of mind for the patient (i.e. it was present prior to the cardiac event).It is know that being hopeless increases oneís risk of having a heart attack.

††††††††††† Hope College ursing students had 70 patients fill out the Stress Survey (in folder) shortly after their heart attack.The results are shown and labeled in PASW (under Variable View).The nurses were also required to have the patient fill out the HSQ Booklet (in folder) when the patient was in the hospital for cardio rehab 1-2 weeks after the patient had the heart attack (Wave 1).For those patients who continued to go to cardio rehab 7-8 weeks after their heart attack, they were asked to fill out the HSQ Booklet again in the hospital (Wave 2).Then a few weeks later when the patient was not in rehab anymore, the HSQ Booklet was mailed to the patients to fill out again (Wave 3).It should be noted there is a lot of missing data due to patients not continuing cardio rehab, from the low response from the mail follow up and mostly from a lack of participation in the HSQ survey.The How to Score (in folder) scored the results from the HSQ Booklet.These results are also shown and labeled in PASW.

  • Variable 297 (hopemisswave2)-missing data from Stress Survey for Wave 2 (0=Not Missing Data, 1=Missing Data)
  • Variable 298 (hopemisswave3)-missing data from Stress Survey for Wave 3 (0=Not Missing Data, 1=Missing Data)

  • Variable 302 (state)-the average measure of the state scores (10 or 13 questions) from the Stress Survey for Wave 1. (Note: Lower scores like 1=no hopelessness and higher scores like 4=complete hopelessness. High state scores represents that the hopelessness came from the heart attack.)
  • Variable 303 (trait)-the average measure of the trait scores (10 or 13 questions) from the Stress Survey for Wave 1. (Note: Lower scores like 1=no hopelessness and higher scores like 4=complete hopelessness.High trait scores represents that the hopelessness came from a trait the participant had before the heart attack.This hopelessness trait does tend to cause more heart attacks.)

  • Variable 311 (hastate)-when the state number is greater than 2 the participant has hopelessness due to the heart attack, and when the state number is less than or equal to 2 the participant has no hopelessness due to the heart attack for Wave 1. (0=No Hopelessness, 1=Has Hopelessness)
