Abstract:
The aim of the present study was to investigate the existence of anxiety and compare anxiety and life satisfaction level among working and non-working mothers. The study also aimed to investigate whether anxiety has any effects on life satisfaction among working and non-working mothers. Purposive sampling method was used for this study. 50 graduate government servants (Working mothers) and 50 graduate housewives (non-working mothers) were selected as part of the sample. State-Trait Anxiety Test was used to assess the level of state and trait anxiety among working and non-working mothers. Life satisfaction scale was also used to assess the life satisfaction level among working and non-working mothers. Participants‟ scores were evaluated and analysed after using statistical techniques like mean, standard deviation, t-test, correlation and regression. The results showed that there exists no significant difference on the level of anxiety among working mothers than the non-working mothers though the mean anxiety scores of both the group is high. There exists no significant difference on life satisfaction level among working and non-working mothers though the mean scores of life satisfaction of working mothers is higher than non-working mothers. There exists negative and significant correlation between anxiety and life satisfaction among working and non-working mothers. There exists no significant interaction effect of low and high anxiety level on the life satisfaction among working and non-working mothers. The findings showed that anxiety has no significant relationship with life satisfaction. It can be concluded that anxiety does not significantly predict life satisfaction among non-working mothers.
