"'Negative Working Conditions Score' Linked to Depressive Symptoms" - Science Daily. 09/03/2013.

Using a nationally representative sample of mid-life adults, Sarah Burgard and colleagues analyzed the relationship between working conditions and depressive symptoms. Looking at four waves of data over 15 years, they found than workers with high scores for "negative working conditions" reported greater depression than their low-score counterparts. Burgard says: "These findings add to the growing body of evidence that employment is an important source of divergence in mental health across midlife." This analysis appears in the September 2013 issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
