The purpose of this study was to explore validity and reliability of the Lifespan Sibling Relationship Scale (LSRS) which was developed by Riggio (2000) in a sample of young adults. The research has been conducted on 510 (339 female, 171 male) university students who attended pedagogical formation training at Dokuz Eylül University and fourth grade students who attended various departments of Faculty of Education. The six factor structure of the LSRS was tested by means of confirmatory factor analysis method. The findings indicated that the six-factor model is supported by using the confirmatory factor analysis. The reliability of LSRS was examined with test-retest reliability and internal consistency methods. Results showed that the scale can be used for measuring sibling relationships in young adults.
