Wage gap could explain why women are more likely to be anxious and depressed than men

Wage gap could explain why women are more likely to be anxious and depressed than men | Herstory | Scoop.it
The odds of major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder were markedly greater among women who earned less than their male counterparts, with whom they were matched on education and years of experience, according to new research conducted at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. Results of the study are online in the journal Social Science & Medicine.

The odds that an American woman was diagnosed with depression in the past year are nearly twice that of men.
