A total of 103 consecutive attendees at a clinic for PTSD (65 males and 38 females) were examined using a checklist of DSM-IV PTSD characteristics. The presence and absence of all symptoms were evaluated in a research interview. Some additional symptoms were also routinely asked about, such as mood lability, substance use, sex drive or libido. The interviews were conducted by the author and lasted over an hour each. Information was tabulated and investigated using chi-squared function of the SPSS statistical package.
