 Martyrs and sacrificers' families have higher mental health problems than others due to their particular circumstances, and this makes clear the need to pay more attention to their health. The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors affecting the level of morale, happiness and life expectancy in martyrs and sacrificers' families.
Instruments & Methods: In this descriptive-correlational study in 2014, 593 people from martyrs and sacrificers' families in Fars province (Shiraz, Marvdasht, Kazeroun, Abadeh, Darab, Arsanjan, Lar and Neyriz cities) were selected through multistage cluster sampling. Research instruments were Miller's Life Expectancy Questionnaire, Oxford Happiness Scale, Positive And Negative Affect Scales, and Psychosocial Factors Questionnaire. Data were analyzed by independent t-test, one way ANOVA, LSD test and Pearson correlation coefficient.
Finding: The level of morale, happiness and life expectancy was negatively correlated with the age (p<0.01). The components of attitude toward exercise, amount of study, religious commitment, social support and the acceptance of the place of sacrifice and martyrdom had a positive and significant correlation with morale, happiness and life expectancy (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Factors such as age, attitude towards sport, amount of study, religious commitment, social support, and the acceptance of the place of sacrifice and martyrdom have an impact on the level of morale, happiness and life expectancy in martyrs and sacrificers' families.
Keywords: Morale, Happiness, Life Expectancy, Martyrs and Sacrificers' Families
