Abstract

The research was undertaken to study the anger levels of adults working in government and non- government organizations. The study was carried out in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh state. Simple random sampling was used to select the respondents. A total of 60 adults aged between 24 – 45 years working in government and non- government organizations were selected. Anger levels of adults were measured with the help of 23- items anger scale developed by T.L. Alaka et.al 2018.  The data was analysed through frequency, percentages, mean, standard deviation and t-test.
