3 School, Social & Personal, and other sub-areas under each main area. The scale can be conveniently used in its full form as well as in its partial form that is only for a particular area. Here researchers have used two areas namely Social and Personal to meet the purpose of study. Both areas in total have 5 items with three alternative responses for each item. The subjects are required to put a tick mark on any of the three alternatives given for each item of the scale. As it is a power test so there is no time limit. On an average subject takes approximately 5 minutes to complete the test of given area. There is scoring key in the manual of YPI on the basis of which scoring is done. Each area has a different maximum possible score. A high score in an area indicate high problem in that particular area. Reliability of YPI is found to be.80, whereas validity is in the range of Result & Discussion: The result of the study was analyzed by using the manual of Youth Problem Inventory and by applying statistical measures of Coefficient of Correlation and t-test. The discussion of each hypothesis is based upon table & graph I, II & III respectively. Hypothesis -1. Social isolation in teenagers leads to depression. Table 1: Table showing N, Score, Mean, SD, Coefficient of Correlation, df & Significance level of Social Isolation & Depression Variable N Score Mean SD r df Level of significance Social Isolation Depression * 298 P >.01 *Critical value of r - at.05 =.138, &.01 =.181 According to hypothesis no. 1, Social Isolation in teens leads to depression. This points to the assumption that social isolation is positively correlated with depression i.e. teenagers who find themselves socially isolated are more prone to depression. According to numerical presented in table no. I, it appears that social isolation leads to depression as mean of depression is and that of social isolation is The high mean on depression proves the hypothesis that social isolation in teens has resulted in depression because corresponding to the mean of social isolation (m = ) the mean of depression (m = ) is high. The coefficient of correlation between social isolation and depression is (df = 298) which is significant at.01 level of confidence (.181). This shows a positive correlation between the two variables. As hypothesis no. 1 is getting support from the findings so it can be concluded that on the basis of sample studied hypothesis no. 1 Social Isolation in teens leads to depression is proved. Studies on social isolation and depression suggest that the relationship between the two is bidirectional. Hypothesis -2 Girls are more prone to depression than boys. Table 2: Table showing N, Score, Mean, SD, t-ratio, df & Significance level of depression among Boys & Girls 251

4 Variable N Score Mean SD t df level of significance Girls * 298 P >.01 Boys *Critical value of t - at.05 =1.972, &.01 = According to hypothesis no. 2, Girls will show more depressive behaviour than boys. This points to the assumption that girls are more depressed than boys. The table suggests that there exist a gender influence on depression. The mean of depressive behaviour of girls (m= 3.52) is higher than the mean of depressive behaviour of boys (m = 2.726). So girls have shown more depressive behaviour than boys. Hence it can be said that the present findings goes with the hypothesis formulated. In order to see whether the mean difference between the two variable is significant or not t-ratio was calculated the value of which is (df = 298). The t- value at.05 level of confidence is and at.01 level of confidence is Thus the obtained t-value is more than the value at.01 level of significance. Hence it can be interpreted that difference between the two mean is actual and has not occurred by chance. So the hypothesis that girls will show more depressive behaviour than boys is supported by the current findings. Studies show that the higher incidence of depression in females adolescence is because of roles and expectations change dramatically. The stresses of adolescence include forming an identity, confronting sexuality, separating from parents, and making decisions for the first time, along with other physical, intellectual, and hormonal changes. These stresses are generally different for boys and girls, and may be associated more often with depression in females. Some researchers have suggested that men and women differ in their expression of emotional problems. In adolescence, boys are more likely to develop behavioral and substance abuse problems, while girls are more likely to become depressed. Kessler, et al (1994) reported in his findings that 21.3% of females and 12.7% of males suffer from depression at sometimes during their lives. The fact that females have traditionally had lower status, power and income than males, must worry more than males about their personal safety and are the victims of sexual harassment and assault much more often than males. Hypothesis -3. Social isolation is higher among girls when compared with boys. Table 3: Table showing N, Score, Mean, SD, t-ratio, df & Significance level of Social Isolation of Boys & Girls Variable N Score Mean SD t df level of significance Girls * 298 P >.01 Boys *Critical value of t - at.05 =1.972, &.01 =

5 According to hypothesis no. 3, Social isolation is higher among girls when compared with boys. These points to the assumption that girls are more socially isolated than boys. The table suggests that there exist a gender difference in social isolation. The mean of social isolation of girls (m = 1.26) is higher than the mean of social isolation of boys (m = 0.886). So girls have shown more social isolation than boys. Hence it can be said that the present findings goes with the hypothesis formulated. In order to see whether the mean difference between the two variable is significant or not t-ratio was calculated the value of which is (df = 298). The t- value at.05 level of confidence is and at.01 level of confidence is Thus the obtained t-value is more than the value at.01 level of significance. Hence it can be interpreted that difference between the two mean is actual and has not occurred by chance. So the hypothesis that social isolation is higher among girls when compared with boys is supported by the current findings. Reports on social isolation indicate that persistent gender gap in social isolation is shaped by both the structure and the quality of social networks. 5. Conclusion The analysis of the data brings us to the conclusion that a positive correlation exist between social isolation and depression as two individualistic variables of study. It was found that social isolation leads to feelings of Loneliness i.e. defined as caused not by being alone but by being without some definite needed relationship or set of relationships. Loneliness appears always to be a response to the absence of some particular type of relationship or, more accurately, a response to the absence of some particular relational provision (Weiss, 1973) which further results in depression. A significant difference was also observed in terms of gender and depression. Girls were high on depression rate than boys. A significant difference was also observed in terms of gender and social isolation. Girls scored high on social isolation when compared with boys. Perlman (1982) elaborated that some people are more susceptible to loneliness and social isolation than others. 6. References [1] Ilardi, Stephen. (2009).
