Locus of Control in Health (Lochi) Inventory
10.1 The Instrument and its Administration
The Locus of Control in Health Inventory (Lochi) Survey measures locus of control in relation to three aspects of health: cure (of illness), prevention of ill health and maintenance of good health. It measures two types of internality—personal (IP) and collective (IC); and four types of externality—luck (EL), fate (EF), God (EG) and doctor (ED). It contains 18 items, 1 for each category, as shown in Table 10.1. The inventory is easy to administer. The respondent records his degree of agreement (on a 5-point scale) for each of the 18 items.
