Resilience & Cortisol_2020
Data of a study examining the association between trait resilience and salivary cortisol in 49 Chinese undergraduates. Saliva samples were collected from participants 6 times per day over 3 consecutive days with compliance monitored by MEMS track caps. The Chinese version of the Brief Resilience Scale (Lai & Yue, 2014) was used to measured trait resilience. It was hypothesized that higher resilience would be associated with a stronger CAR and a steeper diurnal slope. The paper based on the revised data set has been accepted for publication. The dataset was revised because a different computation formula was used for CAR. To avoid confusion, data associated with CAR, DS and AUCg have been removed in the revised dataset.
