About this survey

The Perceived Stress Scale created by Sheldon Cohen at Carnegie Mellon University is a widely used measure of stress in daily life. You can take the test to check your own stress level.

Note that this survey is for you to check your own status only; the result will not be used by anyone else for any kind of research or commercial use.

The questions in this scale ask you about your feelings and thoughts during the last month. In each case, please indicate with a check how often you felt or thought a certain way.
