Family function is closely related to the health of family members. To evaluate the family function appropriatly, We have been used the family APGAR Score, originally proposed by Smilkstein(1978). The score is varied from 0 to 10 and divided into 3 groups.
This study was undertaken to evaluate the differences in family APGAR score between family members. In order to do so, the questionare was given to the middle school students and their parents.
The following results were obtained.
1. There were 342 students and their parents(fathers:335, mothers:339)
2. the mean family APGAR score revealed(mothers: 6.40±2.29, fathers : 6.17±2.28, Students: 5.75±2.41)
3. 134 familes(38.89%) of participients had different group of family APGAR score among their members. To excluds the overlapping of groups by low score defferences, at least 4 points differences between members were divided from the other groups(15.79%)
4. The group whose score had more than 4 point difference between family members revealed low overall individual score than those group with less than 3 point(father; -0.07, mother, -0.08, students: -1.88)
5. There was no significant relations between age differences between members, monthly income, patient number in family and score differences in members.
6. There was relations between variety of religion and mood of members, sex of students and score differences in members.
