AbstractAnxiety among students is a major problem affecting the learning deeds of university graduates. The problem is augmented by socio-economic snags faced by the students and their families. We investigated the major sprints causing stress and anxiety among graduate and postgraduate students. To analyze the issue, we proposed a new theory named The Theory of Household Stress. The theory is based upon three major elements; kinfolks conflicts, economic vulnerability and the extent to which students can manage the workload. Primary data collected via well-structured questionnaire from graduate and post graduate students of economics. The results support the statement proposed. The theory entails for areas having similar cultural, moral and religious values and has some policy lesson.
