Life satisfaction of urban residents: Do health perception, wealth, safety, community pride and, and cultural tourism matter?


The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between urban residents’ life satisfaction and five life domains –health perception, wealth, safety, community pride, and cultural tourism. A convenience sample of 364 urban residents was used. Discriminant function analysis was employed to discriminate between high and low life satisfaction groups based on five life domains. The results showed that life satisfaction was significantly related to the five life domains. It was also found that health perception was the strongest discriminator, followed by wealth and community pride.
