This study was done to investigate the satisfaction with life in adolescents, and to identify factors affecting satisfaction with life for them.


The participants were 1,057 adolescents. Data was collected through self-report questionnaires which were constructed to include satisfaction with life, self-esteem, hostility and hopelessness. The data was analyzed using the SPSS program.


Satisfaction with life for adolescents was significantly different according to school type, grade, scholastic achievement, religion, monthly income of family, conversation with parents and conversation with friends. Satisfaction with life in adolescents correlated with self-esteem, hostility and hopelessness. Significant predictors influencing satisfaction with life in adolescents were self-esteem, hopelessness, school type, conversation with parents, monthly income of family and religion, and these predictors accounted for 37.8% of the variance in satisfaction with life.


The above findings indicate that satisfaction with life in adolescents is influenced by self-esteem, hostility and hopelessness. Therefore when nursing interventions are developed to improve satisfaction with life in adolescents, these factors need to be considered.
