PSY404 GDB Solution
Major depressive disorder (MDD) is one of the most common psychiatric disorders worldwide and has been associated with various sociodemographic risk factors, including age, gender and ethnicity.
The research has been conducted on whether the MDD is more prevalent in woman then in man The present study aimed to establish whether gender-specific differences relating to the prevalence and correlates of MDD exist in the Singapore adult resident population. The lifetime prevalence of MDD was higher among women (7.2%) than men (4.3%). MDD was more prevalent among men and women who were divorced/separated and widowed women, as compared to those who were single
There are many other life time researches that showed that MDD is more in woman then in man. there are many reasons as well depend on the environment in which we live and the biological (hormonal) differences also.
The prevalence of major depression is higher in women than in men in 2010 its global annual prevalence was 5.5% and 3.2%, respectively, representing a 1.7-fold greater incidence in women. In Canada, the prevalence was 5.0% in women and 2.9% in men in 2002 (1.7-fold greater incidence in women) and increased to 5.8% and 3.6%, respectively, in 2012 (1.6-fold greater incidence in women). The finding of similar female: male prevalence ratios in developed countries and globally suggests that the differential risk may primarily stem from biological sex differences and depend less on race, culture, diet, education and numerous other potentially confounding social and economic factors. There is no clear evidence that the rate of depression is greater in countries where women have markedly lower socioeconomic status than men than in countries where there may be more equal footing.
So the Karen Johnson & Lindsay claimed about the MDD ratio in woman then men is higher. I agreed on it.
