HELEN L. BEE
Factors associated with Life Satisfaction among Adults
1. Demographic Factors
o Income / social class: more satisfaction has to do with social
class, do you feel you are in majority/minority / that your rights
are being met
o Education: very weak relationship to satisfaction higher
educated are only slightly more satisfied (satisfaction may come
from what the education affords you, indirect)
o Gender: no difference There may be difference later in life
eause feale idos do ot get rearried do’t at to
take care of anyone else), but males do (often in less than a year
after loss)
o Employment: more satisfaction if employed regardless of salary
o Marital Status: more satisfaction if married (long-term
monogamous union)
2. Personal Factors
o Personality: high in extraversion have more satisfaction / low in
anxiety are more satisfied (however: anxiety can be highly
motivating) (extraversion: get energy from social interactions)
(Currently being questioned no longer in favor)
o Sense of control: more satisfaction (Internal: I am able /
opetet. Eteral: does’t atter hat I do, o’t hae a
influence)
o Social Interaction: more satisfaction (because more people are
going to be interested in you)
o Health: those with better self-perceived health have more
satisfaction especially true in late adulthood (Disease
pathogen, Illness self-perception of health, Sickness health of
a population) (#1 chronic illness is arthritis)
