Aims: The clinicians agree on the fact that the rate of depressiveness increases among youth. The aim of this study was to find answers to three main questions: (1) was the intensity of depressiveness higher in adolescents from city or village? (2) was the intensity of depressiveness higher in girls or boys from different environments? (3) did the intensity of depressiveness change with sex, school form and environment? Material and method: The subjects were 1140 adolescents. The Children's Depression Inventory by M. Kovacs was used. Results indicated that the intensity of depressiveness was significantly higher among adolescents from the city than from the village. In the whole population girls had a higher rate of depressiveness in comparison to boys. The rate of depressiveness increased with age.
