This study tries to estimate the prevalence of anxiety and its relationship with self-esteem among students at the University of Zabol in Iran. The Cattell Anxiety Inventory and the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory were used to conduct a cross-sectional study involving 400 students within an age range of 18 to 31. According to the results, the prevalence of anxiety among these students was measured at a level of 83% and a significant negative relationship was found to exist between anxiety and self-esteem as well as between age and anxiety. Females suffered significantly greater anxiety than males and males measured significantly higher on self-esteem than females. A significant positive relationship was also found between income and self-esteem. Other findings included no correlation between age and self-esteem, as well as no association between marital status, level of income or type of location and anxiety.
