Abstract

This study investigates associations between depressive problems and classroom social status in a large population cohort of Dutch early adolescents N = 1046, age 13.52 ± 0.51, 52.4% girls. Depressive problems were assessed by parent and self-reports and classroom status by peer nominations. We assessed peer status with respect to both achievement-related being a good learner, being good at sports, being good-looking and affection-related being liked, being disliked, being best friend areas. In boys, depressive problems were most strongly associated with not being good at sports, while in girls the association was strongest for not being liked. The risk of a low status in one area could largely be compensated by a high status in another area.
