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.

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).
