Farklı toplumlarda ve bağlamlarda kadınlar  erkeklere göre daha çok depresif semtompları beyan etmekte olup depresyon oranları daha yüksektir. Tipik açıklamalar her kültürde ortaya çıkan kadınların düşük sosyal statüsü, kadın olmanın hormonal yönleriyle ilgilidir. Ancak, cinsiyet farklılıklar  batılı olmayan kültürlerde ve kırsal bağlamlarda yoktur veya azalmıştır.

Bu makale hem cinsiyet farklılıkları hem de hızla gelişen bir toplum olan Türkiyeden elde edilmiş verilerle depresyonda kentsel-kırsal farklılıklarıyla literatüre katkıda bulunmayı amaçlamaktadır.

Türkiye’de kırsal ve kentsel bölgelerde yaşayan üniversite öğrencilerine beck depresyon envanteriyle birlikte  kişisel başarı, ebeveyn kontrolü, ve bireycilik-toplulukçuluk ölçekleri uygulanmıştır.

Hem kentsel hem de kırsal alanlardaki erkek ve kadınlar,  kentsel örneklemde kırsala göre daha az semtom rapor etmekle birlikte birbirine benzer miktarda depresif belirtiler rapor etmişlerdir.

Bu bulgular, kadınların erkeklere göre kaçınılmaz olarak daha fazla depresif oldukları fikrine şüpheyle karşılanmaktadır. Türk toplumu veya Türk üniversite öğrencilerinin yaşamlarında, kadın ve erkeklerde hangi faktörlerin strese neden olan durumları dengelediğini bulmak yararlı olacaktır.
