Divorce Is Stressful, But How Stressful? Perceived Stress Among Recently Divorced Danes
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
This study compared recently divorced Dane’s perceived stress scores with normative data of both (1) general and (2) divorced/separated populations, and investigated the predictive power of sociodemographic- and divorce-related variables on perceived stress. A total of 1,856 divorcees responded to the Perceived Stress Scale and related variables. Recent divorcees had significantly higher perceived stress levels than both the general and the divorced/separated populations. Lower age, lower education level, lower-income, infidelity, former spouse divorce initiation, not having a new partner, and higher divorce conflict significantly predicted higher stress levels equally among both male and female participants using structural equation modeling.
