Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
This question serves to identify individuals with a diagnosed case of depression (mood disorder or anxiety). Although depression is common, it often goes undetected because it may be attributed to a person’s physical, social or economic difficulties. If left untreated, it can lead to a poor quality of life and even suicide. Treatments for depression can
include medication and counselling.
