VUYK, María Alexandra. "Hope and satisfaction whith life in psychology students in Paraguay". Eureka [online]. 2013, vol.10, n.1, pp. 16-27. ISSN 2220-9026.

This study described and correlated hope and satisfaction with life in 121 undergraduate psychology students in Paraguay (65.3% Universidad Católica, 24.8% Universidad Nacional de Asunción, 10.7% others). Mean age was 24.17 with 85.1% females in the sample. Instruments used were the Adult Hope Scale with the Agency and Pathways subscales, and the Satisfaction with Life Scale. Both scales have satisfactory psychometric properties. Results showed that Paraguayan psychology students possess normal to high levels of hope and life satisfaction, yet those variables were not correlated. As this is incongruent with the literature, further research is needed.
