Remarks
The measurement of satisfaction with social support used is included in the Arizona Social Support Interview Schedule (Barrera, 1980). More specifically, the version adapted for African immigrants living in Spain by Martinez, Garcia and Maya (1993) and Hernández (2003) was used. This instrument examines diverse structural and functional characteristics of social support networks.

Satisfaction with informative support provided by natives:
M = 4,41; SD = 0,90, by fellow immigrants: M = 5,73; SD = 1,17
