The Socioeconomic Determinants of Mental Stress in Ireland
|Title:||The Socioeconomic Determinants of Mental Stress in Ireland||Authors:||Madden, David (David Patrick)||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/3821||Date:||Aug-2012||Abstract:||This paper reviews Irish evidence on the link between socioeconomic factors and various measures of mental stress and well-being. The paper reviews both cross-section and time-series studies and finds that of all socioeconomic determinants, the most consistent role is found for unemployment. In general, stronger results are found for males than for females, but the time series evidence suggests that the relationship between suicide and unemployment appears to be weakening.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
