Using survey data, this study explored life satisfaction of refugees from Bosnia-Herzegovina in St. Louis, Missouri. The results showed no gender differences among any of the major variables. A hierarchical regression analysis found that the demographic characteristics did not predict life satisfaction except for education and that while discrimination had a negative impact on life satisfaction, English competency, attachment to the US, and sense of coherence had a positive impact on life satisfaction. The study has implications for social service agencies and others involved with serving refugees.
