Abstract

Cross-sectional design was employed in this study. The sampling population was divided into two strata; the dormers and the non-dormers. Stratified random sampling was utilized to select participants who answered the research questionnaire. Prevalence ratio was computed to determine if there was a relationship between the prevalence of anxiety and place of residence among first year medical students residing in dormitories and those who did not. Measures of central tendency were utilized to arrange the participants' information such as gender, place of residence and level of anxiety. McNemar test was used to arrive at a statistical decision where there was no significant relationship between the prevalence of anxiety and the living condition of first year medical students. The demographic factor of living in a dormitory was not significantly correlated with anxiety in first year medical student. Gender was not a significant confounding variable in this study. There was no significant difference in the anxiety of female and male first year medical students.
