The current studies sought to extrapolate previous findings regarding the importance of interpersonal events within hassle measurement. It did so by exploring the subscale structure of a comprehensive group of interpersonal and non-interpersonal hassles. It then examined correlations between those components and with measures of distress and well-being. The two studies were based on an item pool developed from prior research that had shown that interpersonal events were missing from a prominent hassle measure (Maybery and Graham, 2001). Principal component analyses and one-factor congeneric models were used to examine the factor structures. The first study (n = 289) identified 3 hassle subscales. The second study (n = 457) incorporated additional course- and study-related items from focus groups and interviews. In that study, the 13 subscales were replicated and two additional hassle factors were identified. The final 15 factors included eight interpersonal and seven non-interpersonal subscales. Moderate correlations were found between some interpersonal and non-interpersonal factors and correlations with commonly used distress and well-being instruments showed a considerable number of weaker moderate relationships...
