I see that middle-aged individuals were less likely to be optimistic. What third variables did y'all think about, that could have affected this? Especially since middle-aged individuals were not more likely to report feeling isolated.

What do you all think are factors that related to there being no statistical difference between rural and urban communities. At first glance I would have thought that rural communities may endorse increased feelings of loneliness especially if they are unable to gather with neighbors and friends during this time. I wonder what could have contributed to retained feelings of social connectivity despite being in a rural area?

Your nicely presented project shows the value of social connectedness in reducing mental health issues, I think these data have applications to all communities, even after the pandemic era

great poster! The lay-out is nice. The significant gender difference is interesting... I wonder what some factors are that make females (on average) more concerned with loneliness/lack of optimism/etc.?

Nice job and helpful to identify the subgroups at greater risk to focus resources and services.
