Your total score:


If you scored:
  • 150 points or less: This means you have a relatively low amount of life change and a low susceptibility to a stress-induced health breakdown.
 
  • 150 to 300 points: This implies that there is about a 50 percent chance of a major health breakdown in the next two years.
 
  • 300 points or more: This implies that there is about an 80 percent chance of a major health breakdown in the next two years, according to the Holmes-Rahe statistical prediction model.
