DISCUSSION TOPIC: WOMEN AND DEPRESSION
Why are so many more women than men depressed? The rate is double. Also, think about this. Men who are married report much greater levels of happiness than married women. In contrast, divorced women report much greater levels of happiness than divorced males. How do you account for this gender difference? Write in with your comments.
Also, consider the possibility that this data may contain what is called a statistical artifact i.e. data results distorted due to a problem in data collection, such as differences in the populations surveyed. Can you guess what might be the source of artifacts?
