ABSTRACTIntroduction: The family constitutes the space per excellence for the man's development; in the Angolan context, the existence is necessary of validated tests that permit its assessment.
Objective: Validate the perception test of family functioning for the Angolan population.
Methods: An instrumental study with a qualitative paradigm was carried out on a sample of 326 individuals randomly chosen. Data processing was performed using the statistical package SPSS in Windows 21.0, applying the Cronbach's Alpha and exploratory factor analysis.
Results: An adjustment to one factor only was shown for the test, which explained the 36.52 % of accumulated variance, as well as excellent communalities and a high internal consistency.
Conclusions: We can affirm that the test has adequate psychometric properties, which permits assessing the family functioning construct in the Angolan population.
