Satistaction with social support
Our Classification
Operationalization
Satisfaction with social support is measured by 6 items with a 7-point Likert forman (1, totally insatisfied; 7, totally satisfied), that provide information about the level of satisfaction with received support in the following areas: expression of personal feelings, social participation, advice, positive feedback, material support and physical assistance
For current analysis, this variable was re-cathegorized in three levels:
1. Low satisfaction; Between 1 and 2.99
2. Moderate satisfaction: Between 3 and 5
3. High satisfaction: Between 5.01 and 7
All the scores were higher than 3, so the final variable had only two levels:
1. Moderate satisfaction: Between 3 and 5
2. High satisfaction: Between 5.01 and 7
