This paper examines gender differences in temporal trends for major depressive disorder in childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood.
The study sample, a high-risk group from the National Institute of Mental Health Collaborative Study on the Psychobiology of Depression, includes 2000 first-degree relatives of probands with affective disorder.
The age-specific incidence rates were analyzed to determine the effect of gender, age, period, and cohort on depression by age 35.
Women had nearly a twofold increase in risk of major depressive disorder, with rates peaking between adolescence and early adulthood.
