Abstract

SCHNETTLER M, Berta et al. FOOD-RELATED LIFE SATISFACTION IN MAPUCHES FROM THE ARAUCANÍA REGION, CHILE. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2012, vol.39, n.1, pp.18-29. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182012000100002.

In order to identify variables which have an influence on satisfaction with food-related life among mapuches a survey was applied to 400 mapuche subjects in the Araucanía Region. The questionnaire included the SWFL (Satisfaction with Food-related Life) scale. It was found that 39.5% were satisfied and 332% extremely satisfied with their food-related life. A multinomial probit model was proposed in which the dependent variable was food-satisfaction, which resulted significant (p<0.01) overall. The probability of high food-related satisfaction increases as fewer people live in the subject's household, more is spent on food, children express their opinion aboutfoodstuffs, he/she consumes "catutos" (a mapuche food), aged 55 or over, not widowed, performs regular exercise, tries not to eat industrialized foods, but does not try to eat foods without additives. Food-related satisfaction in mapuche persons in the Araucanía Region is related to demographic, feeding and life-style variables.

Keywords : food-related satisfaction; multinomial probit model; mapuche.
