ABSTRACT

This study aims to examine the moderating effects of social support in the relationship between discrimination and depression among foreign spouses based on their resident areas, For the analysis, 14,432 sampled female foreign spouses from the 2015 National Survey of Multicultural Families were selected and hierarchical regression analysis was used. The results of this study showed that discrimination was positively related with depression while social support was negatively related with depression of female foreign spouses. Also, the moderating effect of social support was identified among foreign wives residing in rural areas, which means that it enhanced the negative effect of discrimination on depression. This study is significant to provide empirical evidence for developing and implementing social integration policies. For the implication of the study, the researcher suggested qualitative research of discrimination and health as a future study, and social policies and services promoting equal opportunities for foreign spouses,
