The present study was designed to examine differences in life satisfaction between groups of Japanese living in three different countries using the Life Satisfaction Battery (LSB). The LSB was developed by Sorenson (1986) and consists of 12 scales: positive mood, negative mood, physical discomforts, satisfaction, daily routine, competence, accomplishments, resources, stress, motivation, internal obstacles, and external obstacles. This self-report inventory was administered to 747 native Japanese subjects located in three different countries: the United States (325), Egypt (72), and Japan (350). Results demonstrated significant differences between the three groups: Japanese in the United States were generally more satisfied than a comparable group living in their home country, and these two groups were substantially more satisfied with various areas of their lives than were Japanese subjects living in Egypt. This study demonstrates the effects of cultural differences on life satisfaction for people living temporarily in foreign societies, and attempts to explain the differences by interpreting the subjects' expectations and by examining access to help.
