MASO, Mansueto Dal  and  FEITOSA, Fabio Biasotto. A comparative study among sociodemographic data and neuroticism. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.3, pp. 1182-1197. ISSN 1808-4281.

Neuroticism has been refered as an important indicator of mental health. The study of the neuroticism level in a specific population can be strategic to plan politics and collective health programs. The aim of this study was to assess the neuroticism in college students from Rondonia. The subjects that participated in this survey study were 1.031 students of both genders, between 18-75 years-old, who self-evaluated the level of their neuroticism. Data were collected by using a form with sociodemographic items and the EFN to assess neuroticism. Results showed that neuroticism levels varied significantly according to sex and marital status. The theorical and practical implications of the neuroticism for psychological work in collective health were discussed.
