Description

The paper analyzes socio-demographic and psychological predictors of pandemic stress in Kosovo. The research conducted in 2020 has collected data on the sample of 366 respondents from Kosovo. The respondent of both sexes were included in the sample, aged 18 to 47 with different levels of education. The following variables were taken as psychological predictors: personal and social concerern. The effects of other socio-demographic characteristics (age and education) were also tested.

Applied multiple regression (stepwise forward) proved that: The coefficient of determination is R2 = 0.16, which means that the group of predictors together explains 16% of the variance of the criterion variable. The results from the regression analysis shows that in the group of predictor variables, in the context of the examined variables, above is considered the type of information on Covid-19. Predictors also provide a high degree of explanation of the variance of the criterion variable: concern for the health of relatives and the amount of personal information on Covid-19. The calendar age of the subjects stands out as important factors in predicting pandemic-related stress in the vulnerable-resistant dimension to pandemic-related stress.
