ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between social safety awareness and life satisfaction of the elderly and to test the role of solidarity that mediates this relationship. We examined the influence of social safety awareness and solidarity on life satisfaction among the elderly based on the 379 surveys from elderly households collected in 2014. Frequency analysis and descriptive statistics were used to examine demographic characteristics, and Sobel test was used to validate the mediating effect and mediation pathway significance suggested by Baron & Kenny(1986). The results of the analysis are as follows. First, social safety awareness and solidarity of elderly people have a statistically significant effect on life satisfaction. Second, the sense of solidarity of elderly people has a mediating effect on the relationship between social safety awareness and life satisfaction.
