Studied factors associated with subjective well-being in 218 male and female university students (aged 18–26 yrs)in Mexico. Data on sociodemographic variables, affective factors, family and psychosocial factors, and life satisfaction were obtained by questionnaire. The Multidimensional Scale of Subjective Well-Being (P. A. Anguas-Plata and L. I. Reyes Lagunes, 1998) was used. The results were evaluated according to gender, emotional factors, and life satisfaction. An ANOVA and other statistical tests were used. The results show that family, personal, and peer relationships; religion; and economic and governmental factors are associated with life satisfaction. In general, life satisfaction is more highly correlated with family factors than with factors associated with friends, economy, or government. The results are compared with those of other research studies on subjective well-being.
