Italian Emerging Adults’ Financial and Subjective Well-Being: Individual and Family Predictors

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroContributo a convegno


The prolonged transition to adulthood, characterizing the Mediterranean area and in particular Italy (Tagliabue, Beyers, Lanz, 2014), challenges research in investigating the factors enhancing emerging adults’ well-being . In particular the financial crisis of 2008 determined a difficult financial situation, especially for emerging adults. Thus, research on emerging adults’ well-being should also consider the financial dimension (Shim et al., 2009). The study aims to illustrate the different factors explaining financial and subjective well-being in emerging adulthood. Individual factors (work condition, living arrangement, financial independence, age, personal needs and expenses), family factors (family structure, parental [emotional] and financial support, perceived financial status) and individual and financial well-being were collected from 285 Italian emerging adults (20-30 years old). Preliminary findings underline that different predictors affect subjective well-being according to emerging adults ‘ work condition. Moreover, family variables (emotional support and perceived financial status) explain different percentages of financial well-being’s variance: students (54%), student-workers (27,3%) and workers (16,7%). Multigroup analyses related to emerging adults working condition will be performed. Findings will be discussed taking into account the European context .
