Depressive Mood States and Their Cognitive and Personality Correlates in College Students: They Improve over Time.
Wong, Jane L.; Whitaker, Dani J.
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v49 n5 p615-21 Sep 1993
Approximately 30% of 171 college students reported some dysphoria. Depressed mood states were associated with dysfunctional attitudes and self-esteem problems; not with gender or self-reported problem-solving ability. First-year students reported highest levels of dysphoria, but there appeared to be consistent, gradual improvements, such that by senior year students reported significantly less dysphoria.
