Abstract

Flood disaster is a phenomenon that causes stress, anxiety and depression to flood victims. This study was conducted to examine the differences in the level of stress, anxiety, depression and quality of life among flood victims based on demographic factors; and, to analyze the relationship between stress, anxiety, depression and quality of life. In addition, the most dominant factors predicting the quality of life among flood victims were also studied. A survey method was utilized for this study. Data was gathered by distributing questionnaires to flood victims in the district of Kubang Pasu, Kedah. A total of 294 respondents participated in this study. Stress, anxiety and depression were measured using the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS), while quality of life was measured using a combination of instruments; namely the World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQOL-BREF) and the Impact of Event Scale - Revised (IES-R). Descriptive and inferential statistical analyses were performed to analyze the data. Results indicated that there were differences in stress, anxiety and depression according to race, age, occupation and income. For the quality of life, it varied according to race, age, and occupation. Results of the study also found no significant relationship between stress, anxiety and depression with the quality of life enjoyed by the flood victims. Results showed that the main predictors of the quality of life were anxiety and depression. The study implicates that improvements can be made by the flood management agencies to enhance existing management policies, particularly those involving recovery phases such as health services, medical, welfare and support. This may help to reduce the psychological impact and enhance the quality of life among flood victims.
