The mediating role of alienation in self-reported health among Swedish adolescents

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between a sense of alienation and self reported health. A sample consisting of a total of 446 high school students aged 15-19 (Mean age = 16.95, SD = 1.01, Female = 59%), with a participation rate of 91%. The Jessor and Jessor alienation scale and the Nottingham Health Profile of self reported health were used to gather data. To analyze the relationship between sense of alienation and self reported health, a path model was created and tested using structural equation modeling. The results suggest that sense of alienation is importantly related to the domain of self-reported health. The alienation variable mediates between mental health (energy level, sleep and emotional reaction) and physical health (pain pain and physical mobility).
