In this research we investigated the underlying factors of depression. The sample contained 2981 subjects with the following characteristics: "healthy", suffering from Major Depressive Disorder or suffering from Bipolar II Disorder. They completed the Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology-Clinican30 (IDS-C30), three times in a half year period. During this period the subjects received Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. To find the underlying factors we used different methods. First we generated three models using exploratory factor analysis. Subsequently we tested these models using confirmatory factor analysis. We also tested a model that was suggested by the IDS-C30. We found that the model containing the factors anxiety, gloominess and somatic/vegetative was on average the best predicting and the most correct model.
