What did we investigate?
We studied the level of mental well-being perceived by Italians in January 2022 and asked: "How would you rate your general state of mental health? (I am mentally well VS I am not mentally well)".
1,000 responded. 24% were Italians who rated their mental health positively and said they were mentally stable. 76% say they are not well, rating their mental health status negatively.
The research was conducted on a representative sample of the Italian population (1,000 people) aged between 18 and 64 years. 50.1% were women and 49.9% men.
Nearly 8 out of 10 Italians (76%) say they are not well. On the other hand, 2 out of 10 Italians are well in terms of mental health.
As can be seen in the second graph, there are no significant differences between men and women. Both the majority of men and women say they are not well mentally.
Young men aged 25-34 are more likely than those aged 45-64 to report being mentally unwell. On the other hand, men aged 45-54 are more likely than other age groups to say they are well.
Young women aged 18 to 24 are more likely than those aged 35 to 64 to report that they are not mentally well. On the other hand, women aged 45-54 are more likely than other age groups to say they are well.
When comparing men and women by age group, the following data stands out: the same percentage of women and men in each age group report being mentally unwell, except in the 18-24 age group. In fact, younger women (18-24) are more likely than men to report feeling unwell mentally.
1,000 people from all Italian regions
These are people living in Italy. The sample was calculated with a confidence level of 95% and a margin of error of 5%. People living in Abruzzo, Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Emilia-Romagna, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Lazio, Liguria, Lombardy, Marche, Molise, Piedmont, Apulia, Sardinia, Sicily, Trentino-Alto Adige, Tuscany, Umbria, Valle d'Aosta and Veneto took part in the survey.
The sample is representative
The sample of 1,000 people is representative of the Italian population in terms of both gender and the age groups examined. The distribution of the sample respects the age and gender distribution of the Italian population.
