Subjective social status and depression symptoms: a prospective study of women with noncancerous pelvic problems.
The investigators sought to examine the effect of community and national subjective social status (SSS) on symptoms of depression in a racially/ethnically diverse sample of adult women with noncancerous uterine conditions. They found that low perceived community social status is predictive of symptoms suggestive of major or other depressive disorder among women with noncancerous uterine conditions.
