Marital status and psychological well-being: A cross section analysis

Ugo Perini, Emiliano Sironi

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


Using data from the Generations and Gender Survey (GGS), the aim of this work is to examine whether marital status is associated with individuals' psychological well-being in Georgia. Results underline that widowed and separated people show greater emotional distress with respect to married ones. Empirical evidence shows that there is an association between psychological well-being and marital status that is also gender specific with respect to some measures of well-being: women seem to be more depressed than men after having experienced a marital breakdown, while no gender differences emerge when loneliness has been considered as a measure of well-being.
