Welcome to the OSF page for the **Development of State Moral Elevation Scale (SMES) Project**. Here, you will find information for the manuscript, "*Development and validation of the State Moral Elevation Scale: Assessing state-level elevation across nonclinical and clinical samples*," which includes 1) both raw and cleaned data, 2) R code for replicating analyses from the manuscript, 3) supplemental material for the manuscript, and 4) the final SMES measure and instructions. To replicate analyses, please see the [Files](https://osf.io/4g629/files/) section and first, download the entire "Data & R Code" folder as a zip file. From that folder, you can open the R Project file titled, "SMES.Rproj". From there, you can open any .Rmd file or object. If you want to replicate the same steps as the main paper for this project, you can use the following order: 1. Data_Cleaning 2. Descriptives 3. EFA 4. CFA 5. Reliability 6. Validity 7. Manuscript Figures 8. Modification Indices (Supplemental Material) *The *SMES_cleaned.csv* file located in the "Cleaned Data" folder can also be used to examine variables after all data has been cleaned and scored.
