ABSTRACT
This paper discusses the self-rated social well-being of a small sample of Hmong college students in Northern California. Social well-being is defined as the state of social and cultural adaptive functioning, and includes such concepts as feeling prosperous, being healthy, and being happy. Fifty Hmong college students between the ages of 18 to 30 who either left Southeast Asia as children or were born in the United States participated in the study. Overall, 41% said that the future looks bright for them and 72% said that their living standard would be better off five years from now.
