Resumen

This research was carried out in order to determine the incidence of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) in a health staff sample of the Mexican Army and Air Force, by means of a digital instrument presenting the GADI scale. Data obtained were analyzed in the SPSS v27, obtaining an incidence of 27.51%, this being higher than the prevalence reported in the general world population (3 to 8%) and Mexican (3%); as well as similar to the prevalence of anxiety in military populations of Latin American countries: Ecuador (28.2%), Colombia (more than a third of military personnel under 55 years of age) and Mexico (45.77% in a previous study).
