The aim of the present study was to examine ego identity status among Swedish adolescents using the EOM-EIS-II. Identity status scores and distributions were examined for 222 (108 women, 114 men) Swedish high school students. There was a greater likelihood of female adolescents being categorized as moratoriums, and there was a greater likelihood of males being categorized as diffusions. To achieve a preliminary construct validation of the EOM-EIS-II four of the participants were also assessed using Marcia’s identity status interview. There was a fairly good accordance between the interview assessment of identity status and the EOM-EIS-II assessment in this study.
