Sex differences in the association between area deprivation and generalised anxiety disorder: British population study
OPEN BMJ open | 6 May 2017
O Remes, N Wainwright, P Surtees, L Lafortune, KT Khaw and C Brayne
Studies have shown that area-level deprivation measured by factors, such as non-home ownership, non-car ownership and household overcrowding, can increase the risk for mental disorders over and above individual-level circumstances, such as education and social class. Whether area-level deprivation is associated with generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) independent of personal circumstances, and whether this association is different between British women and men is unknown.
