Life satisfaction is an overall assessment of feelings and attitudes about one's life at a particular point of time. The present study was designed to investigate the differences in the level of various components of life satisfaction on the basis of certain demographic variables i.e. gender, age, family type, and background. Life Satisfaction Scale (Alam&Srivastava, 2001) measuring six components of life satisfaction i.e. Health Satisfaction (H.S.), Personal Satisfaction (P.S.), Economic Satisfaction (E.S.), Marital Satisfaction (M.S.), Social Satisfaction (S.S.), Job Satisfaction (J.S.) and overall Life Satisfaction was used to measure Life Satisfaction. The sample of study consists of 240 subjects in the age range of 18-32 years. ANOVA was used to analyse the data. The results of the study indicate that Health Satisfaction is affected by gender and age; Personal Satisfaction is affected by family type, Economic Satisfaction and Marital Satisfaction are not affected by any of the variables in the study; Social Satisfaction is affected by gender, age, and background; and Job Satisfaction is affected by age, and family type. However the groups did not differ significantly on overall Life Satisfaction score in any of the demographic determinants of the study.

Abstract


Life satisfaction is an overall assessment of feelings and attitudes about one's life at a particular point of time. The present study was designed to investigate the differences in the level of various components of life satisfaction on the basis of certain demographic variables i.e. gender, age, family type, and background. Life Satisfaction Scale (Alam&Srivastava, 2001) measuring six components of life satisfaction i.e. Health Satisfaction (H.S.), Personal Satisfaction (P.S.), Economic Satisfaction (E.S.), Marital Satisfaction (M.S.), Social Satisfaction (S.S.), Job Satisfaction (J.S.) and overall Life Satisfaction was used to measure Life Satisfaction. The sample of study consists of 240 subjects in the age range of 18-32 years. ANOVA was used to analyse the data. The results of the study indicate that Health Satisfaction is affected by gender and age; Personal Satisfaction is affected by family type, Economic Satisfaction and Marital Satisfaction are not affected by any of the variables in the study; Social Satisfaction is affected by gender, age, and background; and Job Satisfaction is affected by age, and family type. However the groups did not differ significantly on overall Life Satisfaction score in any of the demographic determinants of the study.
