Objective(s): Resilience could result in individuals’ stability and subsequently could contribute to one’s mental health during difficult situations. Thus, this study aimed to assess resilience and its related factors in adult populations.
Methods: This was a population-based study among a random sample of Iranian adults aged 18 to 65 years old. To collect data a short demographic questionnaire and the Connor- Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC2) was administered. Descriptive statistics and logistic regression were performed to explore the data.
Results: In all 20487 Iranian adults participated in the study. The mean age of participants was 41.25±13.9. The mean resilience score was 6.1±1.9 (out of 8). Overall, 57.2 percent of participants scored equal or higher than mean. The results obtained from logistic regression analysis indicated that younger age (OR= 0.996، 95%CI: 0.993-0.999), education [primary school (OR= 2.00, 95%CI: 1.83-2.19), high school (OR=1.35، 95% CI: 1.26-1.44)], employment status [unemployed (OR= 1.12, 95%CI: 0.98-1.28), housewife (OR= 1.25, 95% CI: 1.12-1.4), student (OR= 1.35, 95%CI: 1.22-1.48), employed (OR= 1.50, 95%CI: 1.33-1.69)] were significantly associated with lower resilience.
Conclusion: The findings suggest that Iranian adults showed a relatively high resilience during the covid-19 pandemic. It seems that age, education and employment status play important role in increased or decreased resilience.
