Having more job authority increases depression among women, but decreases it among men finds study

Having more job authority increases depression among women, but decreases it among men, new research shows.

Do we need to add “depression gap” to the lexicon of problems women face in the workplace?Capture d’écran 2014-11-20 à 13.49.16

It seems so, according to a new study. The research, published in the December issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, found that having more job authority increases depression among women, but decreases it among men.

The survey was conducted among more than 1,300 middle-aged men and 1,500 middle-aged women, all of whom graduated from high school in Wisconsin. It was conducted by sociologist Tetyana Pudrovska of the University of Texas and Amelia Karraker, an assistant professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at Iowa State University.
