BANGKOK (The Nation): Heads of families or breadwinners in urban areas in Bangkok and 18 other provinces are suffering from stress due to political turmoil and economic woes, an Abac poll revealed yesterday.

The poll was conducted from October 10 to November 1. Of 3,293 respondents surveyed, 59 per cent said they were ‘stressed out’ by the country’s ongoing political instability, while 56 per cent said they were affected more by economic hardship.

Respondents with bachelors degrees suffer more from politics compared to those with lower education (74 per cent to 56 per cent). Those with lower education suffered more from economic woes compared to those with bachelors degrees (62 per cent to 55 per cent).

Asked how they would relax, 82 per cent of the survey participants said they would travel with their families, while 17 per cent said they had not yet made any plans. The provinces most chosen for their vacations are Chiang Mai, 49 per cent; Phuket, 32 per cent; and Chon Buri, 15 per cent.
