Linear-logistic regression analysis indicated the instrument is a stronger predictor of drink driving recidivism among Caucasians than African-Americans. Practical implications of a finding of differential validity for risk screening are discussed, and the need to evaluate other instruments with respect to differential validity is addressed.
