Abstract

This paper presents the results of a study of unemployment among British Asians living in the north of England, The sample comprises 139 employed and unemployed men. Using standardized psychological questionnaires with a semi-structured interview schedule, the psychological consequences of unemployment are examined in relation to other psychosocial variables. The results showed that the unemployed group had lower levels of psychological well-being, self-esteem, and employment commitment with high external beliefs, than the employed group. Length of unemployment was a significant determinant of psychological well-being andrespondents with a longer period of unemployment had a lower level ofpsychological well-being than those who had been unemployed for a shorter period. The findings are examined in the context of existing empirical evidence, and the need to examine the psychological impact of unemployment among other British Asian groups is emphasized.
