  • Social Isolation, Healthy Habits, Inequality and Mental Health in the
           United States

      Abstract: Abstract The objective of this work is to deepen the analysis of the socioeconomic determinants of mental health, paying special attention to the impact of inequality, not only in income distribution but also in gender, racial, health and education inequality, social isolation, including new variables to measure loneliness, and healthy habits, on the mental health status. For this purpose, a cross-sectional model for a sample of 2735 counties in the United States is estimated using Ordinary Least Squares in its robust version to solve the detected heteroscedasticity problems. The results obtained show that inequality, social isolation and certain lifestyles, such as smoking or insomnia, are detrimental to mental health, while sexual activity prevents mental distress. On the other hand, poor counties suffer more cases of suicide, with food insecurity being the main problem for mental health. Finally, we found detrimental effects of pollution on mental health.

  • The Rapid Decline of Happiness: Exploring Life Satisfaction among Young
           People across the World

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Adolescence and early adulthood are periods of rapid physical and emotional development and coincide with important social and economic processes in the lifecycle. This group now represents a quarter of the world’s population, and the antecedents of many later-life health problems occur during this period of life. We report on the level and determinants of life satisfaction among individuals age 15–24 years across the main regions of the world and contrast these findings with those for adults age 25–59 years using Gallup World Poll data from 145 countries/territories in 2014 and 2015. We find that adolescence and youth is the age range during which life satisfaction declines most rapidly in all regions of the world, except South Asia and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Additionally, in the three regions where overall life satisfaction is lowest, MENA, South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, the life satisfaction gap among youth in the poorest and richest quintile is the largest, reflecting the reality that children in some of the world’s poorest countries already face adult realities and responsibilities by this age. Correlates for young people and adults are strikingly similar and include material conditions, such as financial life and food security, and noneconomic factors such as social support, health, and internet access. Differences across the life-course emerge in life satisfaction correlates of education and health, which are stronger for adults than young people.

  • Who Gains Mental Health Benefits from Work Autonomy' The Roles of
           Gender and Occupational Class

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In recent years, improving work autonomy as an important priority in the UK labour market has been shown to enhance employee mental health and well-being. However, previous theories and empirical studies have paid little attention to the intersectional inequalities in the mental health benefits of work autonomy, preventing us from gaining a comprehensive understanding of the mental consequences of work autonomy. By integrating literature from occupational psychology, gender and social class, this study develops theoretical hypotheses regarding whether and how the mental health benefits of work autonomy vary alongside the intersectional axes of gender and occupational class and tests these hypotheses using long-term panel data in the UK (2010–2021). Overall, we find that those from higher occupational class and male employees acquire significantly more mental health benefits from high work autonomy compared with those from lower occupational class and female employees. Moreover, further analyses show significant intersectional inequalities of gender and occupational class. While male employees from all occupational classes gain significant mental health benefits from work autonomy, only female employees from higher (but not lower) occupational classes benefit from work autonomy. These findings contribute to the literature in the sociology of work by demonstrating the intersectional inequalities in mental health consequences of work autonomy, especially for women in the lower occupational class, highlighting the need for a more gender- and occupation-sensitive design in future labour market policies.

  • Body Dissatisfaction and Social Anxiety among Adolescents: A Moderated
           Mediation Model of Feeling of Inferiority, Family Cohesion and Friendship
           Quality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Previous research has documented that body dissatisfaction is positively related to social anxiety. However, little is known about the mediating and moderating mechanisms underlying this relation. Based on person-environment interaction theory, this study aimed to examine the chain mediation effect of feeling of inferiority and family cohesion in the relationship between body dissatisfaction and social anxiety among adolescents and whether this mediating process was moderated by friendship quality. A total of 972 students (M = 15.77, SD = 0.856) were enrolled in this study. All participants completed questionnaires regarding adolescent body dissatisfaction, feeling of inferiority, family cohesion, friendship quality and social anxiety. Our study found that body dissatisfaction was positively associated with social anxiety. Feeling of inferiority and family cohesion were found to play a chain-mediated role in the relation between body dissatisfaction and social anxiety. In addition, friendship quality plays a moderating role in the relationship between body dissatisfaction and social anxiety. According to the person-environment interaction theory, this study not only confirms the effect of body dissatisfaction on social anxiety in a collectivist culture, but also reveals the mechanism of the role of individual characteristics (feeling of inferiority) and external environmental factors (family cohesion) in the relationship between body dissatisfaction and social anxiety, and the moderating effect of friendship quality on the whole mechanism. These findings show lights on how body dissatisfaction is associated with social anxiety in adolescents.

  • Happily Distant or Bitter Medicine' The Impact of Social Distancing
           Preferences, Behavior, and Emotional Costs on Subjective Wellbeing During
           the Epidemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract To inhibit the spread of COVID-19 Public health officials stress, and governments often require, restrictions on social interaction ("social distancing"). While the medical benefits are clear, important questions remain about these measures' downsides: How bitter is this medicine' Ten large non-probability internet-based surveys between April and November 2020, weighted statistically to reflect the US population in age, education, and religious background and excluding respondents who even occasionally role-played rather than giving their own true views; N = 6,223. Pre-epidemic data from 2017–2019, N = 4,032. Reliable multiple-item scales including subjective wellbeing (2 European Quality of Life Survey items, Cronbach's alpha = .85); distancing attitudes (5 items, alpha = .87); distancing behavior e.g., standing 6' apart in public (5 items, alpha = .80); emotional cost of distancing and restrictions on social interaction (8–12 items, alpha = .94); and an extensive suite of controls (19 variables). Descriptive statistics, OLS regression, structural equation models. Subjective wellbeing is greater for those who approve of distancing, for those who practice distancing, and particularly for those whose distancing attitudes and behavior are congruent, either both in favor or both opposed (multiplicative interaction). The emotional cost of distancing is strongly tied to wellbeing and is heterogeneous, with some disliking distancing much more than others. An SEM model suggests causality: that emotional costs strongly reduce wellbeing but not vice-versa. During the epidemic, COVID issues constitute two of the top 5 influences on wellbeing, behind only subjective health and religious belief and tied with income. All this is net of family background, religious origins, age, ethnicity, race, gender, rural residence, education, occupational status, marriage, unemployment, income, health, religion, and political party.

  • Residential Segregation as a Policy Priority to Address Health
           Disparities: a Multilevel Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract To address racial residential segregation, considered a reflection of structural racism, and its relative importance to social determinant of health (SDOH) pathways to health disparities, we analyze self-reported health, a known predictor of health outcomes. We use County Health Rankings, a public dataset provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. Using a panel dataset (2016 to 2019) with multilevel modelling techniques, we compare racial residential segregation at the county level to other health-outcome related county level characteristics considered pathways to disparate health outcomes. Consistent with prior research we find that higher racial residential segregation is associated with greater reporting of fair or poor health. However, the effects of education and economic stability measures of SDOH are more important for predicting fair/poor health outcomes than segregation. Our research highlights the need for more multi-level analysis and a better understanding of the complex nature of SDOH in a structural racism approach to inform where, when, how, and for whom policies are developed, funded, and implemented at the local level.

  • Relationship between Internet Use and Negative Affect

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract While positive emotions like happiness and life satisfaction have received great attention, how to eliminate negative affect is largely neglected. This study contributes to the literature by examining the relationship between Internet use and people’s negative affect. Unlike previous studies that consider only one indicator, we capture negative affect from different dimensions by considering loneliness, sadness, and life hardship. We employ an endogenous ordered probit model to address the selection bias of Internet use and analyze the 20,107 individual-level samples sourced from the 2020 China Family Panel Studies survey. The results show that Internet use significantly reduces people’s loneliness, sadness, and life hardship. We also find that studying online and watching short videos would increase people’s loneliness feeling and shopping online deepens people’s life hardship. In contrast, using WeChat significantly reduces sadness and life hardship. Our findings confirm that guiding people to use the Internet appropriately is necessary to reduce negative affect and improve the quality of their life.

  • The Mediating Roles of Subjective Well-being Increasing Strategies and
           Emotional Autonomy Between Adolescents’ Body Image and Subjective
           Well-being

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate a proposed model of the relations between emotional autonomy and use of subjective well-being increasing strategies and subjective well-being in early adolescents. This model hypothesized that adolescents’ level of body image would mediate the relation between early adolescents’ emotional autonomy and use of subjective well-being increasing strategies and subjective well-being. A total of 236 Turkish early adolescents [Ageranj = 10–15, AgeMean = 12.72, AgeSd = 1.06] participated in the study. These adolescents included 133 females (56.4%); and 103 males (43.6%)]. The following measures were employed: The Body Appreciation Scale Emotional Autonomy Scale, Subjective Well-Being Increasing Strategies Scale for Adolescents, Positive–Negative Affect Scale (PANAS), and Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS). Two-stage structural equation modeling was used for data analysis. Bootstrapping analysis was employed to test the mediation effects. Support for the hypothesized model was provided. The findings suggested that programs designed to support early adolescents’ subjective well-being should address not only emotional autonomy and use of subjective well-being increasing strategies, but the development of body image as well.

  • Safety, Perceptions of Good Treatment and Subjective Well-Being in 10- and
           12-year-old Children in Three Countries

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Satisfaction with safety and satisfaction with how adults listen to children and how they take what they say into account are the most important satisfaction domains that contribute to children’s subjective well-being (SWB). However, there is still more to know about what contributes to both domains. Little is understood about their mediating effects on the safety perceptions of being cared for and supported in terms of children’s SWB. Age and country are also relevant variables in this equation that suffers from a lack of information. Therefore, this article attempts to shed light on these questions by using the third wave of the Children’s Worlds data set that covers Spain, Brazil, and Chile and focuses on the 10- and 12-year-old age group. Results show that perceived contexts (home, school, and neighborhood) in each country are very important for assessing satisfaction with personal safety, while having parents who listen and take children’s opinions into account is very important for SWB in all contexts. The importance of the effects of feeling safe on SWB increases from late childhood to early adolescence, with its indirect effects being much more important than direct effects. Most children do not perceive to be listened to by teachers or do not perceive that what they say is taken into account by their teachers, which does not turn out to be very relevant for SWB in any of the three countries. Despite existing relationships between all of the variables analyzed, there are differences depending on the country and age group, with a common relationship observed between some of them.

  • Social Policies and Theories on Quality of Life under COVID-19: In Search
           of the Missing Links

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract COVID-19 has generated many negative impacts on the family, including impaired psychological well-being of family members (parents and children) and family processes (such as parenting and family functioning). Regarding social policies to support families under the pandemic, there are several missing links. First, COVID-19 related policies mainly focus on physical well-being with a relatively weaker emphasis on psychological well-being. Second, with social policies primarily aiming at stabilizing the “financial capital” of the public, human capital (particularly personal resilience) and social capital (particularly family resilience) are relatively neglected. Third, while “general” social policies may help “averaged” individuals and families, there is a need to take pre-existing family vulnerabilities (such as poverty and caregiving burdens) and inequalities into account when formulating “down to earth” social policies. Fourth, while social science knowledge and theories have important potential contributions to help develop relevant policies and services to promote quality of life under COVID-19, explicit utilization is not strong. With reference to these missing links, we proposed several research and practice directions for the promotion of quality of life under the pandemic.

  • Reconsidering the Conceptualization of Resilience: The Experiences of
           Refugee and Immigrant Youth in Montreal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Over the last two decades, immigrant and refugee integration service agencies in Canada have been incorporating a focus on resiliency in their work and hold “fostering resilience” as a primary goal of services. These agencies focus on helping their clients enhance resilience in response to their integration challenges. Refugee and immigrant youth (RIY) face intersectional vulnerabilities during their resettlement process. These challenges make the concept of resilience vital to their success. However, resettlement service providers associate RIY’s resilience with their assimilation into the Western culture such as integrating into the dominant culture. This definition is insensitive to cultural and social factors that contextualize RIY’s definition of resilience. Drawing from in-depth interviews of Refugees and Immigrant youths in Montreal, and using Resilience as a conceptual framework, the research study investigated the barriers to the integration of RIY and their conceptualization of resilience. The study found social isolation, cultural differences between the host and home communities, racism, hostility, aggression, and language to be barriers to RIY’s integration. The youth conceptualized resilience as a form of adaptability to any situation; as the ability to integrate into a new society while remaining deeply rooted in one’s culture and past experiences; and overcoming marginalization. The paper contributes to a nuanced critical understanding in the field of refugee and migration studies and further throws light on a growing triangular interrelationship between social and economic integration of refugees, cultural factors of host communities, and resilience.

           U.S.-Born Adolescents

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The present study examines whether easy talking with parents would buffer the association between bullying victimization and declining academic performance among a nationally representative sample of foreign-born and U.S.-born adolescents. The study was drawn from the Health Behavior in School-Aged Children 2009-2010 cohort study in the United States. Analyses include descriptive statistics, correlation analysis, and moderated regression analysis for each group (i.e., foreign-born and U.S.-born). Results indicate a significant relationship between bullying victimization and declining academic performance for foreign-born and U.S.-born adolescents. Findings also suggest that easy talking with parents moderated the association between bullying victimization and declining academic performance but for foreign-born adolescents only. The study highlights the importance of family and parental communication to ensure immigrant adolescents’ health, well-being, and academic progress. Practice and policy implications and future research directions are discussed.

  • Can Teleworking Improve Workers’ Job Satisfaction' Exploring the
           Roles of Gender and Emotional Well-Being

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract With the rise of teleworking during the past decades, the impacts of teleworking on job satisfaction have been extensively debated. Teleworking might benefit workers by improving work-life balance and emotional well-being, but it also brings considerable challenges. This study empirically investigates the impacts of teleworking on workers’ enjoyment across daily working episodes and job satisfaction and its gendered patterns, using Ordinary Least Squares regressions and the latest nationally representative time-use survey data in the UK. Moreover, it uses the Karlson/Holm/Breen (KHB) decomposition method to examine the role of enjoyment at work in mediating the associations between teleworking and job satisfaction. Overall, this study yields two major findings. First, among men, teleworkers tend to have higher levels of enjoyment at work and job satisfaction, but this is not the case for women. Second, around 46% of teleworking’s positive impacts on men’s job satisfaction can be explained by higher levels of enjoyment at work. Taken together, by integrating different theoretical perspectives on teleworking, gender and emotional well-being, this study provides interdisciplinary insights into the nuanced social consequences of teleworking, highlights the disadvantaged position of women in the use of teleworking, and demonstrates the need to enhance emotional well-being in future labour market policies.

  • Effects of Economic Capital, Cultural Capital and Social Capital on the
           Educational Expectation of Chinese Migrant Children

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The barrier for Chinese migrant children to receive compulsory education in megacities has been gradually solved in recent years. The demand for senior high school education is now the bottom line for most of migrant children. Unlike compulsory education, high school education in China is a prerequisite for students to enter university and can profoundly affect their future decisions. This study aims to identify how various dimensions of economic, cultural and social capital embedded in the family, school and peer contexts influence the educational expectation of Chinese migrant children. The study results showed that all dimensions of capital significantly influenced the educational expectation of migrant children except family social capital. The effect of objectified cultural capital appeared to be the most predominant factor. Surprisingly, against the original hypothesis, economic capital and embodied cultural capital negatively influenced educational expectations.

           of Violent Political Participation

      Abstract: Abstract The present study aimed to examine Hong Kong junior secondary school students’ participation in different types of political activities, to identify profiles of adolescents based on their political participation, and to examine potential protective and risk factors associated with adolescents’ violent political participation during the social unrest in Hong Kong from a positive youth development perspective. A total of 2,016 students (age = 13.92 ± 1.10 years) recruited from 24 secondary schools in Hong Kong participated in an online survey six months after the social unrest subsided. The findings provide a comprehensive descriptive profile of Hong Kong adolescents’ political participation. Four clusters of adolescents with homogeneous patterns of political participation were identified: (1) “Politically Inactive” (42.6%); (2) “Legal Participant” (27.5%); (3) “Radical/Violent Activist” (13.0%); and (4) “Peaceful Activist” (17.0%). Logistic regression analysis showed that being female, born in Hong Kong, having a weak local identity and a strong national identity, a high level of bonding, prosocial involvement and prosocial norms, a low level of parental psychological control and family conflict, and a good parent–child relationship were associated with a low risk of adolescents’ violent political participation. The findings point to the needs to further promote social cohesion in Hong Kong society, to help adolescents avoid the potentially essentialized dichotomy in their identity construction, and to develop programs targeting the identified risk and protective factors to prevent adolescents from engaging in political violence and to promote their civic participation.

  • Immigrant Integration in Europe. A Subjective Well-Being Perspective.
           Angela Paparusso (2021)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This book explores immigrant integration in Europe in all its complexity and multidimensional character. The author begins by providing a brief historical background of immigration in Europe in order to understand the evolution of this phenomenon towards something structural. She then goes into the traditional models of immigration in that continent and the immigration policies implemented in the different countries, assessing its effect by making reference to the Migrant Integration Policy Index 2020 affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. What makes this book original, in this sphere, is the introduction of the concept of subjective well-being applied both to immigrants and European host countries. This subject is tackled through surveys which lead to the analysis of self-reported life satisfaction among first generation immigrants in seven European countries. In this respect, Angela Paparusso focuses particularly in Italy where she studies the wellbeing and integration of children with a migrant background In her conclusions, she dwells on policy making which calls for the incorporation of local, national, and international governmental institutions and further proposes novel lines of study.

      Abstract: Abstract Numerous studies have indicated that the quality of employment available to young adults when entering the labor market determines their future career paths. In particular, young adults who grew up in poverty are at greater risk, as they tend to be less competitive than their peers in the job market. However, only a few studies have explored the role of the length of poverty exposure and gender difference in this relationship. Thus, this study examines the impact of the duration of childhood poverty (1–14th waves) on both employment status (employed vs. unemployed) and type (regular vs. non-regular workers) in the early years of labor market participation among young adults in South Korea. Data from young adults aged 25–34 years (N = 595) from the Korean Labor and Income Panel Survey (KLIPS, Korean Labor Institute; 22nd wave) were analyzed for this study. The results showed a gendered effect on the relationship between the duration of childhood poverty and employment type. The duration of childhood poverty showed no association with the young South Korean's ability to procure jobs. However, it was associated with female participants’ employment type. This indicates that women with a longer duration in childhood poverty have more difficulties in obtaining a decent job. Therefore, developing gender-sensitive intervention policies that focus on providing equal education opportunities and facilitating a smooth school-to-work transition may ameliorate the intergenerational transmission of poverty.

  • Small Acts With Big Impacts: Does Garbage Classification Improve
           Subjective Well-Being in Rural China'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Solid waste has surged in rural China, home to more than 540 million people. To preserve the environment, the Chinese government has piloted garbage classification programs. However, little is known about whether and to what extent classifying garbage affects people's subjective well-being—should its effects be positive, people would be more amenable to classifying garbage, making it easier to entrench garbage classification practices and programs and ultimately improve the environment. Accordingly, we analyze the impact of garbage classification on subjective well-being using the 2020 China Land Economic Survey data. An endogenous treatment regression model is utilized to address self-selection into garbage classification programs. We find that this simple and somewhat mundane practice can significantly improve people's happiness and life satisfaction. These results reaffirm the compound benefits of allocating more public resources to accelerate the adoption of garbage classification in rural areas.

  • Disparities in Social Insurance Participation and Urban Identification
           Among In-situ Urbanized Residents in China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract China’s in-situ urbanization implies a phenomenon where rural populations become new urbanites as their land was reclassified as urban. While studies have suggested that social insurance may play a role in encouraging urban identification, empirical evidence in this field remains scarce. Highlighting the identity construction experience of in-situ urbanized residents, this study assesses the efficacy of major health and pension insurance in promoting a sense of urban identity in the context of China’s rapid urbanization. We analyze data from the 2018 Urbanization and Quality of Life Survey (N = 3,229) conducted in 40 localities that undergo in-situ urbanization. Results of multi-level modelling show that those participating in urban insurance schemes such as the Urban Employee Basic Medical Insurance (UEBMI) are more likely to identify as urban. Enrollment in the New Rural Social Pension Scheme (NRSPS), however, is negatively associated with urban identification. There are also variations associated with the interaction of social insurance and hukou status. To promote future urban integration of in-situ urbanized residents, it is vital to build an equitable, efficient, and equal-access social insurance system in urbanizing China.
