Debt and Mental Health – New Insights about the Relationship and the Importance of the Measure for Mental Health Margareta Dackehag, Lina-Maria Ellegård, Ulf Gerdtham och Therese Nilsson


Background: Empirical research suggests that household debt and payment difficulties are detrimental to mental health. Despite well-known measurement problems that may contaminate analyses using subjective self-reported health measures, our knowledge is very limited concerning the effect of payment difficulties on ‘objective’ measures of mental health. Moreover, few studies use longitudinal data to examine the relationship. This study combines rich survey data and longitudinal data from administrative registers on a representative sample of the Swedish population to examine the relationship between payment difficulties and subjective and objective measures of mental health.
