The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships between life satisfaction, hope, and happiness of older adults who used computers and those who did not use computers. This study surveyed 69 adults who were 50 years of age or older to identify whether computer usage affected their level of life satisfaction, hope, and happiness. The results showed that there were no significant differences in the mean scores from the Hope, Happiness and Life Satisfaction Scales for computer users and non-computer users. However, participants who were computer users on the average had higher mean scores on the Life Satisfaction and Hope Scale than non-computer users indicating that computer users had higher levels of global cognitive judgments towards their life satisfaction and a higher level of hope.
