Εκτίμηση του επιπέδου άγχους και της ποιότητας ζωής του εργατικού δυναμικού στην Ελλάδα
SubjectDemographic surveys -- Greece
In this thesis the level of stress and quality of life of the workforce in Greece is explored. Many studies have shown that profession is a significant factor contributing to anxiety. Levels of stress and quality of life in all different categories of professions are studied in order to detect which one is the most affected by anxiety as well as which factors are related to anxiety. Demographic and clinical data were used from a convenience sample which was collected in 2011, in the beginning of Greece’s economic crisis. At first all the statistically significant factors are identified and it is confirmed that the subjects’ profession indeed affects level of anxiety and, subsequently, quality of life. Freelancers have higher anxiety levels, which lead to lower levels of quality of life; farmers exhibit relatively low anxiety levels. Lastly a profile for all the categories of professions is created by using the statistically significant variables in each category.
