Resumen

RIOS RODRIGUEZ, Mª Luisa  y  MORENO JIMENEZ, Mª Pilar. Life satisfaction, community participation, place attachment and identity of place in immigrants and natives. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2010, vol.3, n.2, pp.8-16. ISSN 1989-3809.

Previous research on life satisfaction suggests that it is related to many pysco-social variables. The present study aims to investigate the relation of life satisfaction with other variables which have been less studied up until now. The objective is to analyze attachment and identity of place of residence, and participation and life satisfaction shown by neighbours in a quarter, and to check differences between immigrants and natives. Furthermore, the relationship among these variables will be analyzed and life satisfaction will be predicted from the remaining three variables. The complete study involved 307 participants, including 156 natives and 152 immigrants. The results show differences between both groups in community participation and identity of place (higher levels in natives). In immigrants, 16.3% of satisfaction is predicted by identity of place and social participation, while 4.6% of satisfaction in natives is predicted by identity of place. These and some other previously recognized variables could constitute a more solid explicative model for life satisfaction in immigrants.

Palabras clave : Life satisfaction; participation; place attachment; place identity.
