|Title:||Satisfaction with life among adolescents from Portuguese immigrant families in Switzerland|
|Abstract:||The aims of this study were to determine the level of satisfaction with life among adolescents from Portuguese immigrant families in Switzerland and the factors related thereto. The sample consisted of 93 participants (mean age = 16.1 years; SD = 1.4). The mean duration of sojourn in Switzerland was 7.2 years. A control group of 187 Portuguese youth was also included in the study. There were no significant differences in level of life satisfaction between Portuguese adolescents living in Portugal and those living in Switzerland. Whereas demographic factors accounted for only 8% of the variance explained, demographic and psychosocial factors accounted for 31% of the variance explained. Psychological symptoms were the most important predictor of life satisfaction. Behavioral problems, gender, and mastery were also found to be significant predictors of life satisfaction.|
