A cross-sectional survey utilized the Perceived Stress Scale, Brief COPE, and Health Promotion Lifestyle Profile II to ascertain similarities and differences between American (n=319) and Chinese (n=335) college students and between higher and lower stressed students in both samples. The results suggested the existence of a country difference in terms of perceived stress level, stress coping strategies, and health promotion practices. Similar differences were also observed between higher and lower stressed students, regardless of country. (Contains 5 tables.)
