Headline from CNBC Online, Nov 18, 2010
Nearly 1 in 5 Americans had mental illness in 2009″
The last line in the article reads,
The survey also found that 23.8 percent of women had some form of mental illness, compared with 15.6 percent of men.
That’s 50% greater mental instability among women than among men. I think the CNBC writers missed a good headline. That is not to say we agree with the results of the survey. We have no idea what the percentage should be.
