Question: Are men or women more likely to develop an anxiety disorder?

Answer: Anxiety disorders include a number of different subcategories: generalized anxiety, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder and social phobia. And really for all of these different categories, women are more likely than men to develop anxiety disorders.
