Who Is Most Affected by Depression in the U.S.?

According to the CDC's most recent findings, people aged 45-64 make up the highest population of Americans affected by chronic depression. Blacks (12.9 percent) and Latinos (11.7 percent) reported higher levels of depression than whites (8 percent). On the whole, people with less than a high school education, those previously married, people that were unemployed or unable to work, or people without health insurance experienced highest levels of depression, according to the CDC. (Photo: Getty Images)
