Subjective well-being of tribes and non-tribes: a quantitative analysis
Tribes of India are generally known to be ancestors of primitive inhabitants. Many of whom are largely isolated from India’s mainstream society and culture. Among these tribes lodhas are one of the major primitive groups in West Bengal and Odisha. Recent decades witnessed a surge of interest in the development of quality of life, subjective wellbeing of these tribal peoples. Considering the importance of subjective well-being which is a major parameter of development the present study intends to measure the subjective well-being of tribes and non-tribes. In the present study 60 participants are selected from Suljapada block of Mayurbhanj District. Out of 60 participants 30 were tribes and 30 were non-tribes. Both the groups were administered subjective well-being inventory. The study adopted a t-test to compare the two groups. From the study it was found that there exists a significant difference between tribes and non-tribes.
