The study investigated the influence of education and occupation on life satisfaction of married women using 240 participants aged between 25 and 52 years with a mean age of34. 19 and standard deviation of 4.95. The satisfaction with life scale (SWLS) by Diener (1993) was used to ascertain the level of life satisfaction among the participants in different occupations and levels of educational attainment. The 4x3 factorial design study used the two-way ANOVA statistic and the scheffe's post analysis test to ana1yze and make inferences on the data. The result showed that at P<.001 educational attainment and occupation both significantly influenced life satisfaction.
