The Depth of Despair among US Young AdultsKnown as the deaths of despair, the drivers of increasing midlife mortality are under debate, and the role of hopeless and despair is unclear. Using data from the nationally representative National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health), I test whether increases in indicators of despair have been particularly acute among White, low-educated, rural members of the cohort.
