Title Satisfacción con la vida entre jóvenes estudiantes de bachillerato en Zacatecas, México
Creator Martell Muñoz, Juan
Mendoza Martínez, Abrham Ozie
Description The present study has a double objective: on the one hand, it aims to describe the levels of ‘life satisfaction’ among high school students from Zacatecas and Guadalupe, Zac. Mexico and, on the other, it aims to relate such descriptions to gender and sex differences. The results indicate that the participating teenagers exhibit a high satisfaction with life, a fact that was confirmed by the data obtained after the application of Diener’s Satisfaction with Life Scale, which were consistent and reliable. It is discussed that the levels of life satisfaction that these teenagers exhibit present considerable differences in comparison to the levels registered in other population groups with different ages, just as other authors such as Edward Diener have demonstrated at other times
El presente estudio se ha trazado con un doble objetivo: por un parte, describir los niveles de satisfacción con la vida entre jóvenes de Bachillerato de Zacatecas y Guadalupe, Zac. México y, por la otra, relacionar dichas descripciones con diferencias de sexo y género. Los principales resultados indican que los jóvenes participantes exhiben una alta satisfacción con la vida, hecho que se corroboró con los datos obtenidos tras la aplicación de la Escala de Satisfacción con la Vida de Diener, los cuales, además, fueron consistentes y confiables. Se discute que, tal y como han demostrado autores como Edward Diener en otro momento, los niveles de satisfacción con la vida que exhiben estos jóvenes presentan diferencias considerables en comparación con los niveles registrados en otros grupos poblacionales de edades distintas
Palabras Clave: Satisfacción con la vida, adolescencia, juventud, felicidad.
