  15. 15. Stress!!!!!!!!!! Up to 20% (GE) reports high to very high general stress levels. Women indicate relatively more stress than men. Stress significantly drops once passed the age of 55. Overall, the Dutch report least stress. However, in the Netherlands they are also least stress resistant. Work-related factors are relatively more stressing than private ones. Especially the amount of work and the job content stresses people on the work floor. Remarkable is that national politics are a major stress factor for the Italians. Also Spanish are relatively more sensitive for this. So maybe it is a Southern thing ...* The Spanish also score the highest stress levels on most work-related items. Much more than other Europeans, they have experienced burn-outs in the past. © InSites Consulting * Also in Belgium relatively high political stress levels were measured. This might be explained by the political impasse at the time of the data collection. Pan-European Health Study, © InSites Consulting 2008. 15
