MDI - Major Depression Inventory:

Besides diagnosing depression, the MDI also makes it possible to register the severity of the depression as indicated by the MDI total score.​​​

There are at present two versions of the MDI – the original version from 2001 and an updated version in which the item of Sleep (item 9) is divided into two: (a) sleeping too little and (b) sleeping too much). This permits a differentiation between typical and atypical depression which, in contrast to typical depression, includes the symptoms of hyperphagia and hypersomnia.​​
