The fact that depression is twice as high as that of males in females is explained as the expressions of males as alcohol use or different types of behaviors and the inability of women to use these opportunities and their more intense symptoms in the face of the same stress effect. Another important explanation relates to hormonal causes and the role of traditional women. Also, women have additional features that biologically and psychologically predispose to depression, such as pregnancy, childbirth, premenstrual period. Sexual and physical abuse also affect women more.
In terms of the frequency of depression in men and women, the following ranking can be made (from least to most often):
- Married man
- Married woman
- Single or divorced woman
- Single or divorced man
- Living seperated or divorced man.
