Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Delayed Reward Discounting (Monetary Choice Questionnaire)   #530300  About


This measure assesses whether the participant prefers smaller immediate rewards over delayed larger rewards.


This measure captures devaluation of rewards as a function of delay. This is a decision-making dimension of impulsivity and may predict initiation of substance use and is characteristic of childhood externalizing disorders. When compared with the general population, adolescents with conduct disorder, drug users, and drug abusers show greater preference for small but immediate rewards and more readily discount a larger but long-term reward. Thus, substance users may prefer the immediate euphoria of substance use over the longer-term benefits of abstinence (i.e., maintaining employment, relationships, and physical health) (Kirby et al., 1999).
