Targeting Farmers for Stress Reduction. Social Support Networks Help Some More than Others.
Schulman, Michael D.; Armstrong, Paula S.
Journal of Extension, v28 p10-13 Sum 1990
Interviews with a random sample of 725 North Carolina farmers ascertained their levels of stress and the adequacy of social support systems. In general, younger farmers, those who worked more days on farm and those with financial concerns tied to the uncertainties of farm production, had greater stress levels. Social support also varied by age group. (SK)
