Abstract

At the beginning of 2020, Indonesia and almost the entire world were experiencing a health crisis caused by the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Covid-19 pandemic causes changes in human activity patterns that can have negative effects such as decreased physical and mental health. In addition, a negative effect of a pandemic can be an increase in stress. Young adults are susceptible to stress because they are in a transitional period of life. So that the pandemic can increase stress in young adults. There are several factors that can affect stress such as perceived social support. The existence of perceived social support can help young adults manage stress. However, in certain situations such as stressors in the long term can change the quality of perceived social support, so that perceived social support cannot reduce the negative effects of stress. The purpose of this study was to determine the role of perceived social support and stress in early adulthood during pandemic covid-19. The total participants of this research are 385 with an age range of 18-39 years old, data was collected April-Mei 2021. This research method is quantitative using a questionnaire. The technique used in data collection is purposive sampling. This research used regression model as data analysis technique. The results of the data analysis showed that there was negative relationship and the role between perceived social support and stress in early adulthood during pandemic covid-19 (R2=0.056, p= 0.00<0.05). Further analysis using perceived social support dimension showed that the family dimension (p=0.00<0.05), friends dimension (p=0.00<0.05) have a negative relationship with stress, but the significant others dimension (p=0.054>0.05) has no relationship with stress. The result of the data analysis showed there were differences in stress by gender (p=0.014<0.05).
