Objective Predictive and external validity was studied among cluster profiles for sun protection behavior within stages from Transtheoretical Model of behavior change using follow-up data. Methods Data from participants in a home-based expert system were analyzed. Longitudinal patterns of clusters on the precontemplation, contemplation, and preparation stages of change were assessed. Differences between clusters on membership in action/maintenance stages and scores on the Sun Protection Behavior Scale (SPBS) were measured at 12 and 24 months after intervention. Results Differences between clusters on stage progression and on scores from the SPBS were found at 12 and 24 months after intervention at all stages. Discussion Predictive and external validity of sun protection subtypes was established using sun protection variables after a stage-matched intervention. Results provide information to improve interventions for sun protection.
