Abstract


This study examined the effect of gender on perceived stress related to emotional, educational and social adjustment among Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) migrant students. Data were collected from 97 migrant students studying in ninth grade at various JNVs of Punjab state, India. Data analysis using MANOVA revealed that gender and perceived stress has significant effect on the three dimensions of adjustment (educational, social and emotional). However, combined effect of gender and perceived stress was not found to be significant. Implications for school administration, teachers, counsellors and wardens have also been discussed in the paper.
