APA Poll Finds Economic Stress Taking a Toll on Men
Date:5/7/2009

Middle-Aged Men Stressed about Work, Money and the Economy

Seven out of 10 American Workers Affected by Employers' Cost-Cutting Measures

WASHINGTON, May 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Economic pressures are having an increasing impact on men aged 35 to 54, according to a new survey by the American Psychological Association (APA). Growing numbers of middle-aged men are reporting significant stress related to work, money, housing costs and job stability. The poll was conducted online by Harris Interactive(R) between April 8 and 10, 2009, among 2,160 adults.

For the first time, the numbers of men in some age groups reporting stress related to certain economic factors have surpassed those of women of the same age, while at the same time the numbers of women reporting stress due to those factors have gone down slightly."

Among 35-44 year olds, the number of men reporting money as a significant stressor also surpasses that of women (88 percent vs. 77 percent). Job stability is a growing concern among males in this age group as well, with 71 percent reporting this as a significant stressor, a jump from 57 percent last September. Almost two-thirds of men ag
