The present study performed confirmatory factor analysis across major racial and ethnic groups of the BASIS-32, a measure of functional status of persons receiving mental health treatment and suitable for routine assessment mental health care. The purpose was to perform a preliminary investigation of cross-cultural equivalence in a county-level mental health program in a major metropolitan area. The results indicated a factor structure similar to that reported in the literature, and they suggested acceptable levels of agreement in structure between racial and ethnic minority groups and whites. The study revealed little reason to believe that the BASIS-32 varied in underlying structure across racial and ethnic boundaries, although further research is indicated.
