The dataset is focused on the correlation between Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and depression among university students in Bangladesh during the COVID-19 pandemic. The dataset is cross-sectional, meaning that data was collected at a single point in time. Data was collected from 1st July 2022 to 30th September 2022 using a self-administered online survey created with Google Forms. Samples were obtained from both public and private universities throughout Bangladesh. The survey included questions related to demographic information, BPD symptoms (measured using the MSI-BPD), depression symptoms (measured using the PHQ-9), and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health. The survey was distributed through a variety of channels, including social media platforms, university email lists, and student groups.
