Abstract

This study aims to determine the impact of socio-economic and gender factors on common mental disorders in married women in Indonesia. Using the National Women’s Life Experience Survey in 2016 and binary logistic regression, the common mental disorders were measured based on detailed questions consisting of 20 Self Reporting Questionnaire (SRQ-20) questions with 5/6 cut off. The results of the inferential analysis show that socio-economic factors and gender factors significantly influence emotional, mental disorders. The socio-economic factors that significantly influence common mental disorders are the level of education and wealth index. Gender factors that significantly influence the common mental disorders of married women are the duration of the marriage, husbands' activities and domestic violence by husbands.
