Zoomers too. The GSS asked in 1996 and then again in 2016 if respondents have "ever felt that you were going to have a nervous breakdown?". They may have actually experienced one or just felt on the verge of doing so. The percentages who answered in the affirmative, by sex, age range, and year surveyed:
The percentages of people, by selected demographic characteristics, experiencing poor mental health defined as issues with "stress, depression, and problems with emotions" in the past month, by whether or not they own at least one gun.
