A study involving 194 social workers in Massachusetts explored the association between work ethnic and life satisfaction and the impact of gender. Findings indicate being female, being married, being employed full-time, and being satisfied with one’s job were associated with life satisfaction. For women, high levels of work ethnic were associated with high levels of life satisfaction, while there was a much smaller correlation for men. Implications are discussed. Numerous references.
