PUEBLA ROSALES, Enrique; AVENDANO ALARCON, Sergio  and  ESTRADA GOIC, Claudia. Descriptive study about psychological subjective well-being in southern Patagonian habitants. Sophia Austral [online]. 2018, n.22, pp.209-222. ISSN 0719-5605.

The primary objective of the present research was to characterize the subjective well being of the southern Patagonia population. A group of 400 people constituted the no random auto selective sample part in this study. The non-experimental cross design used a self- apply questionary to measure the psychological, subjective well-being. The results indicate that the population shows a high overall average of well-being, with differences observed in some domains and dimensions of this variable, particularly for socioeconomic level, marital status, and schooling. Contrary to what was stated in the literature, no significant differences were observed according to gender or age. The results are discussed around the observed differences between studies with other cultures realities and its potential interest for the mental health of the individuals, subjected to environmental conditions characteristic of Patagonia.
