Are Any Anxiety Disorders More Common Among Any Specific Ethnic Groups?

Question: Are any anxiety disorders more common among any specific ethnic groups?

Answer: Certain ethnic groups or cultural groups appear to us to be more high-strung or prone to anxiety than others. But anxiety is a very common condition all throughout the world. There are certain cultural emphases that might make certain phobias or certain concerns more intense in one group than another. For example, in Japan social anxiety is a bigger issue than perhaps in some other cultures because of the extreme emphasis on being socially appropriate and considerate of one's friends and neighbors in that culture.
