Based on the data collected from a sample of parents (n =125) and a sample of adolescents (n = 373) in Hong Kong, the psychometric properties of the Chinese Parental Sacrifice on Child's Education Scale (SA) are examined in this paper. Results showed that the scale had good reliability (internal consistency and test-retest reliability) and convergent validity in both samples. For the dimensionality of the measure, a 3-factor structure was extracted from the adolescent sample and a 5-factor structure was extracted from the parent sample. The present study is a pioneering attempt to assess parental sacrifice for child's education in Chinese communities.
