The salary chart, which you can find after the jump, is based on a 12-hour work week and a minimum wage of $2.25 per hour. A lot of the numbers were culled from some studies out there like this one, where they compare the average pay of various careers in various parts of America.
If you’re interested, we wrote an article about it back on June 14, 2011.
It seems to us like that’s the ballpark median earning per hour on today’s jobs. We don’t want to oversell the numbers, but they might be an accurate way to estimate what you can comfortably make.
There are over 60 million people who suffer from depression, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), and an estimated 25 million suffer from some form of anxiety.
Researchers found that about 1.4 million of them did not know a psychiatrist and 5,000 of them suffered from mild-to-moderate depression. That’s 1 in 5 of the global suicide rate for people suffering from the condition.
Researchers also found that anxiety diagnoses had a strong link to suicide: people who had more severe diagnoses were more than twice as likely to have attempted suicide as those with mild symptoms.
The team, from the Max Planck Institute for Psychiatry in Munich, Germany, said their information supports that people suffering with mental health problems should seek treatment, as depression is one of the most common causes of death in Europe and the US.
Dr Mark Whitaker, a psychiatrist, said the findings “provide the best evidence yet for the need for early diagnosis and interventions”.
“Our findings provide valuable new information on the need for early and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment,” he added.
Researchers said there are different rates of anxiety and depression in different countries, and that studies based on European statistics may have failed to account for differences.
They also found that the link between anxiety diagnoses and suicide was strongest in women.
They also found that one in three people in Britain who suffer from depression have no diagnosis and that anxiety had an even broader impact on people of working age in a variety of European and other countries with different health systems and conditions.
The research also highlighted a significant gap in availability of treatment, which should be addressed.
“Even in countries with high levels of treatment coverage, anxiety is still common. That’s despite the fact that almost no-one is diagnosed with a mental illness in the EU except possibly for depression,” Whitaker
