Abstract
The aim of the study was to examine how perceived stress, self-esteem and life satisfaction covariate, if gender differences exists in these variables and to examine whether perceived stress can be predicted from self-esteem and life satisfaction when controlling for gender and age. The study was based on a survey with 144 students from Lund’s University. The survey included Rosenberg’s Self-Esteem Scale, Perceived Stress Scale and Satisfaction With Life Scale. The results showed a significant negative correlation between perceived stress and the variables self-esteem and life satisfaction, and a significant positive correlation between self-esteem and life satisfaction. A significant gender difference was found in perceived stress, where... (More)

Abstract (Swedish)
Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur upplevd stress, självkänsla och livstillfredsställelse samvarierar, om könsskillnad förekommer bland dessa variabler samt undersöka huruvida upplevd stress kan prediceras utifrån självkänsla och livstillfredsställelse vid kontroll av kön och ålder. Studien baserades på en enkätundersökning med 144 studenter från Lunds Universitet. Enkäten inkluderade Rosenbergs Self-Esteem Scale, Perceived Stress Scale och Satisfaction With Life Scale. Resultatet visade en signifikant negativ korrelation mellan upplevd stress och variablerna självkänsla och livstillfredsställelse, samt en signifikant positiv korrelation mellan självkänsla och livstillfredsställelse. En signifikant könsskillnad fanns i upplevd stress,... (More)

En signifikant könsskillnad fanns i upplevd stress, där kvinnor upplevde mer stress än män. Självkänsla och livstillfredsställelse visade sig signifikant predicera upplevd stress, med självkänsla som den starkaste prediktorn. (Less)
