The September 11 attacks and their impact on mental distress in the UK
AbstractUsing a longitudinal household panel dataset in the United Kingdom, where most interviews are conducted in September each year, we are able to show that the attacks of September 11 resulted in higher levels of mental distress for those interviewed after that date in 2001 compared to those interviewed before it. This provides one of the first examples of the impact of a terrorist attack in one country on well-being in another country.
