Abstract

The structure, characteristics, and influence of stressors among Chinese students in Japan were examined. One hundred seventy-five Chinese students completed questionnaires that included stressor items from Holmes and Rahe (1967) and Yo and Matsubara (1990) and mental–physical health items that assessed depression, somatic complaints, and happiness. Stressors among Chinese students in Japan were classified as 5 factors: Interpersonal Problems, Academic Problems, Health/Living Problems, Financial Anxiety, and Environmental Problems. These 5 factors accounted for 36%, 18%, and 4%, respectively, of the variance in depression, somatic complaints, and happiness. Thus, the factors were clearly detrimental to mental health but had a limited influence on physical health and happiness. © 1996 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
