Wage gap could explain why women are more likely to be anxious and depressed than men | Kinsanity | 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. However, this disparity looks very different when accounting for the wage gap: Among women whose income was lower than their male counterparts, the odds of major depression were nearly 2.5 times higher than men; but among women whose income equaled or exceeded their male counterparts, their odds of depression were no different than men.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

I'm skeptical; I still believe that gender inequality (rampant in the medical sciences as well as the family dynamic where fathers are more involved in their boys lives and are more likely to get them help than their daughters) has more to do with more males being diagnosed. But here's a study that's worthy of noting.

The findings lend support to an often-overlooked hypothesis, Rhodes said. The average superiority of males over females in spatial navigation may just be a “side effect” of testosterone, he said. (Previous studies have shown that women who take testosterone tend to see an improvement in their spatial navigation skills, he said.)
