||This cross-sectional study on stress levels and depressive symptoms involved 220 sales representatives and 220 controls in non-sales occupations. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire enabling the quantification of the levels of anxiety and depression, a questionnaire on occupational activities and a medical examination. Results showed that 35% of the sales representatives suffered from anxiety, and 8% exhibited occasionally severe depressive symptoms. Among controls, the level of anxiety was lower by 15 points and no serious depressive symptoms were observed. However, the study did not enable the identification of specific causal factors.
