Life Satisfaction among Young Adults from Rural Families.
Wilson, Stephan M.; Peterson, Gary W.
Family Relations, v37 n1 p84-91 Jan 1988
Examined possible predictors of life satisfaction among 322 low-income young adults from rural Appalachia. Both objective and subjective conditions of life were predictors of life satisfaction: financial resources, self-esteem, and proximity to childhood home were positive predictors; frustrations about limited job opportunities and community size were negative predictors of life satisfaction.
