Another purpose was to investigate whether these relationships were diverse in the three working categories in the sample. Subjective well-being was measured in two dimensions; life satisfaction and positive affect. Three different kinds of social support; social support from leader, colleagues and friends/family, and two kinds of leadership; fair leadership and empowering leadership, were measured. The result showed significant correlations between positive affect and social support from friends/family. Multiple regression analyses were used to explore if social support and leadership could be used to predict life satisfaction and positive affect in the three groups. Further a one-way analysis of variance was made to investigate differences between the three working categories. The result showed that the facets of social support and leadership were differently related to the working categories. Further, there were also significant differences between the three categories of the facets. (Less)
