Abstract
  This study aimed to compare the psychological symptoms of humidifier disinfectant survivors to the general population
and explore socio-demographic factors influencing survivors’ psychological symptoms. A one-way Multivariate Analysis
of Covariance (MANCOVA) and a series of two-way MANCOVA were conducted with a sample of 228 humidifier disinfectant
survivors and 228 controls. The results demonstrated that the survivor group displayed higher anxious/depressed symptoms,
withdrawn symptoms, somatic complaints, thought problems, attention problems, aggressive behavior and rule-breaking
behavior than the general group. Moreover, among the socio-demographic factors, the two-way interaction effects of
group × family economic status and group × number of friends were found to be statistically significant. The limitations
and implications of this study are discussed.
