Why this Article: Age-period-cohort effects are often very difficult to tease apart, with a major limiting factor being a lack of data covering enough time periods and cohorts. This study analyzes data over a 14 year period in order to isolate recent cohort effects of depressive and anxiety symptoms in nontreated populations. The results do support a cohort effect in that more recently born birth cohorts do exhibit higher levels of psychological distress.
