(CNN) — U.S. women are more likely than men to say they feel worried, nervous or anxious.

That’s according to a survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The survey was conducted in 2010 and 2011.

Twenty-two percent of women said they felt worried, nervous, or anxious daily or weekly, compared to 16 percent of men.

According to the study, younger and middle-age men and women felt those feelings the most.

Older adults were a little happier and less stressed.

Among those age 75 and older, 16 percent of women often felt worried, nervous or anxious, compared with 11 percent of men.

The study is published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
