|Longitudinal Study:||HILDA||Title:||Pretty in Prozac: The role of social connectedness in explaining the declining life satisfaction of Australian females||Authors:||Ambrey, C. L.
Fleming, C. M.
|Abstract:||This paper investigates if social connectedness presents a possible explanation for declining in female life satisfaction in Australia. In doing so, the results indicate that female and male life satisfaction are declining in much the same way; that males and females collectively and separately report higher levels of life satisfaction for greater levels of almost all measures of social connectedness; that the percentage of individuals undertaking a hobby or engaging in frequent social interactions has declined for both sexes, while sense of belonging and tangible support have both increased on average for both sexes and; that social connectedness may mitigate declining life satisfaction of both males and females to a very similar end. Fostering social connectedness would appeal to be one channel through which social welfare might be promoted.||metadata.dc.description.conferencename:||ESAM/ACE 2014||metadata.dc.description.conferencelocation:||Hobart||URL:||https://editorialexpress.com/cgi-bin/conference/download.cgi?db_name=ESAMACE2014&paper_id=317||Keywords:||Families -- Socio-economic status; Satisfaction -- Life; Gender -- Female||Research collection:||Conference Papers|
