3 1.

6 Core Values Respondents were asked to rate the following core values on a scale of 1(not at all important) to 10 (extremely important): Responsibility Family life Friendship Generosity Spiritual faith Material wealth Financial wealth Career success Pleasure Freedom 383

14 Core Values as a Mediator Between Health & Employment There was a consistent trend across all groups High percentages of people in all of the groups ranked responsibility and family values as extremely important, regardless of health or employment status Results could be attributed to the strong ethnic ties and concerned social milieu of the small community 391

15 Findings of note There is a striking difference between higher and lower self-ratings of health and the value placed on wealth in King s County versus Glace Bay. This is one interesting difference, though overall there are more similarities than differences in core values. 392
