Sumer, Seda; Poyrazli, Senel; Grahame, Kamini
Journal of Counseling & Development, v86 n4 p429-437 Fall 2008
The role of gender, age, race/ethnicity, length of stay, social support, and proficiency in English in the variance in depression and anxiety among international students revealed that social support was a significant predictor of depression and anxiety among international students. Age significantly contributed to the variance in anxiety, and self-rated English proficiency uniquely contributed to the variance in both depression and anxiety. Latino/a students had significantly higher levels of depression than did Asian students.
