Financial Strain, Religious Involvement, and Life Satisfaction Among Older Mexican Americans

Publication Abstract

Krause, Neal, and E. Bastida. 2011. "Financial Strain, Religious Involvement, and Life Satisfaction Among Older Mexican Americans." Research on Aging, 33(4): 403-425.

The purpose of this study is to see if financial strain affects the religious involvement and life satisfaction of older Mexican Americans. In the process, an effort was made to explore the factors that promote financial strain in this ethnic group, including immigration status and English language use. The data come from a nationwide survey of older Mexican Americans. Support was found for the following core relationships in the study model: (1) Older adults who were born in Mexico will have less schooling; (2) less education will be associated with less frequent use of English; (3) less frequent use of English will be associated with greater financial strain; (4) greater financial strain leads to less formal involvement in the church; (5) older people who are less involved in the church will have a diminished sense of religious meaning; and (6) older adults with a lower sense of religious meaning will be less satisfied with life.
