ABSTRACT

The primary purpose of the present study is to examine the impact of diabetes and gender on the levels of depression among participants. The study will involve both quantitative and qualitative analysis. One hundred and twenty participants were selected purposively from Cuttack city of Odisha, India. The study has adopted 2(diabetics versus non-diabetics) × 2(adult males versus adult females) factorial design. The participants of these four quasi-experimental groups i.e., sixty diabetics (30 males and 30 females) and sixty non-diabetics (30 males and 30 females) were compared with respect to Beck Depression Inventory, and the obtained scores were analysed and interpreted by using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and percentage analysis. It is likely that the study would generate a number of major implications based on the findings.
