    KARAKTERISTIKE OSOBA SA OPAŽENIM STRESOM U HRVATSKOJ: CroHort ISTRAŽIVANJE ----- Cilj ove studija je procjena razine stresa u hrvatskoj odrasloj populaciji (CroHort), korištenjem PSS. Naši rezultati pokazuju da je razina stresa 17,46 (SD=6,73) za muškarce i 18,32 (SD=6,46) za žene. Najnižu razinu stresa imali su muškarci koji žive u urbanom području dok su žene koje žive u ruralnom području imale najvišu razinu stresa.Muškarci i žene koji su imali visoku stručnu spremu imali su značajno nižu razinu stresa. Najnižu razina stresa imali su ispitanici koji su imali puno bolje materijalno stanje od prosjeka. U muškaraca, stres je bio povezan s lošijim mentalnim zdravljem, lošim socijalno funkcioniranjem, »slabim srcem«, boli u križima, lošim materijalnim stanjem domaćinstva i višom konzumacijom alkohola. U žena, stres je bio povezan s lošim mentalnim zdravljem, lošim socijalno funkcioniranje, lošim materijalnim stanjem domaćinstva, višom dobi, lošijim obrazovanjem, niskim mjesečnim prihodima domaćinstva i lošim zdravljem.

    English abstract

    This study aimed to assess levels of stress in Croatian adult population using PSS, in a population study (Croatian Adult Cohort Health Study - CroHort). Our results show that the levels of stress were 17.46 (SD = 6.73) for men and 18.32 (SD = 6.46) for women in Croatia. The lowest levels of stress experienced men living in urban area while women living in rural area had the highest level. Men and women who had university degree had significantly lower level of stress. The lowest levels of stress experienced participants who had much better financial condition than average. In men, stress was associated to weak heart, lower back pain, poor financial condition of the household and high alcohol consumption. In women, stress was associated to poor mental health, poor social functioning, poorer financial condition of the household, higher age, lower education, low monthly income of the household and poor general health.
