Women respondents’ mean stress rating was 5.34, while male respondents’ mean stress rating was 4.82
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 27, 2012
Polaris Marketing Research Inc. announced today the findings of its latest survey of online Americans, supported by Research Now for data collection and analysis: Women respondents perceive themselves to be significantly more stressed than men.
All 1,206 respondents were asked to rate themselves on a 10-point “stress scale,” where 10 was “very stressed,” and 1 was “not at all stressed.” Women respondents’ mean stress rating was 5.34, while male respondents’ mean stress rating was 4.82.
Further, while men were more likely to rate their stress levels “about the same” as a year ago, women were more likely to say their stress is lower than a year ago.
“Interestingly, we should all be envious of the over 65 crowd, with their significantly lower stress ratings than any other age group,” said Polaris President Jan Carlson
“Not only are they less stressed than any other age group, they are more likely to believe their stress levels are unchanged from twelve months ago. Compare that to the under 50s who rate their stress levels as significantly more stressed, but increasing from a year ago, “ continued Carlson.
