Malaria, a disease caused by various species of Plasmodium is a major health problem in many developing countries. In the present In the present research the difference of anxiety and depression level of the fathers of neurotic and psychotic children was studied. In order to find out the level of anxiety and depression among fathers of neurotic and psychotic children, IPAT anxiety Scale and IPAT Depression Scale were used followed by an interview to obtain information and history from them. Three hundred fathers participated in the study. Hundred fathers had neurotic children, hundred had psychotic children and hundred had normal children. A chi-square test was computed for the statistical analysis of the data. Hypothesis No 5 when calculated for Statistical significance on the sample of 100 subjects in each group i.e. fathers of neurotic and psychotic children rendered a X2 of 3.26 which made it insignificant by the fraction of difference as the X2 of 3.84 is required to make it significant at the level of P< .05. It was then decided to increase the data by 20 subjects in each group to find out the Statistical significance as expected the X2 with the increased data was significant at .05 level. It was concluded that the fathers of neurotic children have high sten scores on anxiety and depression than the fathers of psychotic children.
