A Research Note on the Relationships Between Life Satisfaction, Leisure Satisfaction and Health Satisfaction Among Older Public Housing Residents.
Mancini, Jay A.
Relationships between/among life satisfaction, leisure satisfaction, health satisfaction and self-rated health are examined among a random sample of 74 (58 females, 16 males) residents (median age 70, median income $2,500, in 1976) of public housing in North Carolina. Statistical treatment of the data indicates a positive and significant relationship between life satisfaction and leisure satisfaction, and some positive but not significant relationship between life satisfaction and health satisfaction. Satisfaction with use of leisure time is found to be the best predictor of life satisfaction, followed by self-rated health and health satisfaction, the latter supporting the findings of earlier research. Gender differences are suggested indicating that leisure time satisfaction is more important to life satisfaction among females than among males. (Author/SBP)
