Study: Malaysian women 16th most stressed in the world

NEW YORK: Malaysian women are ranked 16th most stressed in the world, according to a recent study.
The study, which researched the buying and other social behavioural patterns of women in 21 developing and emerging economies of the world, reveals that women all over the world feel stressed out, with women in the so-called emerging countries facing greater stress than women in developed countries.
India has the world’s most stressed women, says the study prepared by information and media company Nielsen.
The study shows that women in India live and work under considerable time pressure.
They are the most stressed at 87%, the study shows, followed by Mexicans (74%) and Russians (69%).
In the developed countries, the stress level is the highest for wo­­­men in Spain (66%), France (65%) and Italy (64%).
Malaysian women (44%) rank 16th in the list, while women in Thailand share 15th spot with South Korea (45%). Japanese women (52%) rank 12th while mainland Chinese women (51%) rank 13th.
According to India’s Economic Times, the greater stress levels of women in the newly industrialised countries can be attributed to the fact that in recent years, for example, in India, the corporate sector and the job market have developed at an extremely fast pace whereas the society has stagnated with its traditional role patterns. — Bernama
