Abstract

Aims: This study investigated the effect of perceived social support on the happiness of the wives of Zanjan physical veterans. Instruments & Methods: This is a descriptive correlational study. 188 wives of physical veterans with a percentage of 40 and above were selected by simple random sampling. Data were collected through Oxford and Zimet questionnaires and analyzed by multivariate regression in SPSS 25 software. Findings: The age group of 45 to 54 years, with 60.6, had the highest frequency. 55.9 of veterans' wives' happiness level was high, 41 moderate, and 3.2 low. Among the happiness components, the lowest mean was related to the aesthetic (1.85) and the highest to self-efficacy (2.27). 78.72 of veterans' wives reported high perceived social support, 15.50 moderate, and 5.85 low. The highest averages were obtained from family (4.02), community (3.92), and friends (2.91), respectively. There was a significant relationship between the components of happiness and perceived social support (p<0.05). The results showed that the correlation coefficient of social support components with happiness (MR=0.443 and RS=0.96) was significant (p<0.00), and 19.6 of the variance of happiness is explained by the dimensions of perceived social support Among the three types of social support, only family support was predictive of happiness (p<0.00). Conclusion: Family support plays a major role in the happiness of physical veterans' wives. Copyright © 2020, ASP Ins.
