A 100-item stress identification instrument was administered to 1200 students at 23 colleges. Responses of men & women were sufficiently different to warrant establishing separate means. The degree of stress reported by women decreased with each grade level, but peaked in the sophomore year for men & declined thereafter. Academic factors were cited most frequently as a source of stress, while relationships & home & community factors ranked high in stress intensity. 12 Refs. (LH)
