Herrero, Juan; Fuente, Asur; Gracia, Enrique
Journal of Community Psychology, v39 n7 p761-775 Sep 2011
The aim of this study is to test the influence that social integration in the community might have on subjective well-being (SWB) beyond the influence of sociodemographic characteristics, self-esteem, stressful life events, and social support from intimate and confidant relationships. We explore this set of relationships among Latin American immigrants in Spain, a group at risk of social exclusion. Results show a positive and statistically significant relationship between social integration and SWB, after controlling for the statistical effects of the other variables. Promoting social integration in the community among immigrant population might grant them access to wider community resources that might play an important role on their SWB. (Contains 2 tables.)
