This chapter focuses on data collection as part of the evaluation of disability, with emphasis on the specific methodology for obtaining data from various sources such as written records and documents, self-report data from the claimant, psychological testing and neuropsychological testing, and information from collaterals such as interviews and treatment providers including psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychotherapists. It also describes instruments commonly used in assessing psychopathology and cognitive functioning during disability evaluation. Finally, it considers formal assessment of the claimant's response style as an integral part of the independent medical examination.
