Abstract This study examines death anxiety across different age groups and genders using Templer's Death Anxiety Scale (T-DAS) in two cities in India: Jaipur and Hyderabad. A total of 72 participants were included, with 37 females and 35 males, representing various age categories. Results reveal that while there are numerical differences in mean T-DAS scores based on gender and age groups, statistical significance was not consistently observed. The lack of significant differences, coupled with consistent median values and interquartile ranges, suggests stability in the central tendency and spread of scores across categories. Caution is advised in interpreting results with small sample sizes, particularly for the "61 & above" age group.
This research underscores the importance of considering both statistical and practical significance in drawing conclusions. Further analyses and larger sample sizes in specific categories are recommended to enhance the robustness of future research in this domain.
The acquired mean of males and females are 5.8 and 6 respectively. Standard deviation in males and females is 2.1 and 1.9 respectively. SD is higher in males than females which indicated that how their data is clustered around the mean and how there is greater variability in data of males. Similarly, mean and SD for different age groups was also found. For age groups 19 – 30, the mean was 6.1, mean for age group 31 – 60, 5.6 and for the age group 61 & above the mean was 8.5. SD was 1.9, 2.0 and 2.1 respectively for different age groups.
Keywords death anxiety, Templer's Death Anxiety Scale, gender differences, age groups, mortality, statistical significance.
