Psychosocial burden as a result of the risk of decreasing income and the possibility of being laid off from
work is a problem that must be faced by workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study was aimed
at analyzing predictors of psychosocial burden among workers during the co-19 pandemic period. A total
of 6,053 worker respondents were involved in this study. The psychosocial burden was reviewed based
on the worries level. There were 4 independent variables involved in the analysis, including age, gender,
marital, and education. A multivariate test was performed using binary logistic regression. The results found
that the workers in the ? 19 age group were 1.900 times more likely than the? 50 age group to experience
a psychosocial burden. The workers in the 40-49 age group were 1.523 times more likely than the ?50
age group. Male workers were 0.693 times more likely than female workers to experience a psychosocial
burden. The higher education workers were 0.563 times more likely than workers with secondary education.
It could be concluded that the 3 variables were proven as predictors of the psychosocial burden among
workers during the COVID-19 pandemic period in Indonesia, namely age, gender, and education.
