Previous work has examined the structure of subclinical positive psychotic experiences. The current study, using confirmatory factor analysis in a general population sample of young adult females, replicated a five-dimensional model, which showed excellent model fit. The results suggest stability of the five-dimensional model across adolescent and young adult life.
