AbstractOBJECTIVE: There are limited studies on the prevalence and correlated factors of depressive symptoms occurring only in one spouse of a married couple. We utilized a national representative sample in China to examine prevalence of depressive symptoms and its associated risks among Chinese older couples. METHOD: A subsample with 1,418 dyads of spouses was selected from China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLES) 2011. Multi-nominal logistic regressions were performed to test risk factors. FINDINGS: The prevalence of depressive symptoms occurring only in wives (around 32%) was over 2 times than that occurring only in husbands (around 12%). Financial support was significantly associated with depressive symptoms occurring in married couples with either husband or wife showed depressive symptoms; emotional support was significantly associated with those with wife showed depressive symptoms. CONCLUSION: The findings lent support to the sociological proposition that social roles lead to the gender difference in depressive symptoms.
