Predicting Your Risk of Depression

Dr. Jian Li Wang, at the University of Calgary, has developed algorithms that are intended to predict an individuals risk of depression. The development of these algorithms was a technically demanding task that used data collected from thousands of people in Canadian and US studies. However, the algorithm itself is not difficult to do - it has now been placed on a web page: that can be linked to here. The web page guides you through a series of questions and once you are done will tell you what your risk of getting depressed is.
