the pandemic and its relationship to the variables sex, age, academic level, and employment status. The size of
the study sample was (1409) of both sexes, divided into 947 females (67.2%) and 462 males (32.8%). The

pandemic in all domains, with a total arithmetic mean of (3.21) and a standard deviation of (0.617). Results
also indicated no significant statistical differences attributed to the gender variable and that the age group
