Life satisfaction and mental well being among migrated and non-migrated students


Issam Dalaeen

Life satisfaction is "a global assessment of a person's quality of life according to his chosen criteria” whereas Mental well-being describes the mental state as to how an individual feels and how well he/she can cope with daily life stressors. The present study is discussing the life satisfaction and mental well-being among migrated and non-migrated students (N=120). There were n1= 60 migrated and n2= 60 non-migrated students which were randomly selected from Aligarh Muslim University, (U.P). The migrated students were from Jordan, Iran, Syria, Indonesia, Yaman, and other countries whereas the non-migrated students were from U.P itself. Satisfaction with Life Scale (Diener, E., Emmons, R. A., Larsen, R. J., & Griffin, S. 1985) and Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale (WEMWBS, edited by Dr. Jane Parkinson) were the two scales used for this research. A significant relationship between life satisfaction and mental wellbeing inmigrants and non-migrants’ students were found at the 0.01 level of significance but no significant difference between life satisfaction and mental wellbeing in migrants and nonmigrants was found. (p<0.01, 0.05).
