Abstract

To determine if there was a difference in the reporting of life events between marital status and sex, a nonexperimental study was conducted. A convenience sampling technique yielded 247 volunteers in a white collar work environment. The subjects were asked to complete demographic information and the Schedule of Recent Experience (SRE) during a visit to the health office. The SRE provided information regarding the life events experienced over the past 12 months. Discriminant analysis and t-test were performed to test the relationship between independent and dependent variables. No statistically significant relationship was seen between the life event scores and sex and marital status. The discriminant analysis performed on each event determined that certain events cluster according to sex and marital status.
