Factors predicting depression among Korean-American women in New York.
A survey was administered to 262 women aged 35-55 years who had migrated to the U.S. within the last 10 years.
The survey included measures of depression, acculturative stress, social support, self-esteem, education, income, age, and length of residence in the U.S. Hierarchical regression analyses in which demographic variables were introduced first indicated that age, education, and income were all significant predictors of depression, with age positively related to depression and education and income negatively related to depression.
When acculturative stress, social support, and self-esteem were introduced on subsequent steps, only self-esteem explained significant additional variability in depression.
Implications for prevention and treatment programs are discussed.
