Income affects mental health

Money can not buy you love, but numbers from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health indicate that individuals who have a high income are less likely of getting mentally sick than individuals who have a low income.

“There is a clear connection between income and mental suffering,” said Marit Rognerud, head physician at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. “Furthermore, education has the same effect on the numbers.”

The numbers indicate that among people who have low income, 17 percent of the men and 16 percent of the women have psychological health problems, while the corresponding numbers for people who have a high income are six and ten percent.
