Sažetak
Across the lifespan social support have important role in individual’s subjective well-being. The aim of this study was to examine the relationships between various indicators of well-being (happiness, life satisfaction and domain satisfactions) and social support given by family, friends or significant others. The study was conducted in spring 2015 within the framework of opinion pool on the representative sample of Croatian citizens. The participants were 1000 adults (52% women) divided in three age groups for the purpose of this analysis: (1) 18 to 40 years, (2) 40 to 60 years, (3) 60+ years. Instruments included one-item ratings (0 to 10) of happiness, life satisfaction, satisfaction with various domains (standard of living, health, relationships, security, future security, achievement in life, community connectedness, and future security), and Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support, scored for support given by family, friends and significant others. Results showed that social support was significantly related to subjective well-being indicators in all age groups, with support from family and friends being more important than support from significant others. The importance of social support for well-being of adults in different stages of their life is discussed in the view of cultural and economic determinants.
