The sample of the study consists of 100 participants. Out of 100 participants, 50 were male and 50 were female. PTSD symptom scale (PSS) developed by Foa, Riggs, Dancu and Rothbaum (1993) was used to assess the levels of PTSD. The collected data was subjected to comparative analysis (t-test) with the help of SPSS. The comparative analysis highlighted that there is significant mean difference in PTSD with respect to gender. Further comparison of means indicates that female participants have higher PTSD as compared to male participants..
