This study also utilized t-test in determining the significant difference between the level of satisfaction of male and female OFWs. ANOVA was used in this study to determine the significant difference in the level of satisfaction in terms of age, receiving country, and years spent in the receiving country. Pearson-r was utilized to determine the significant relationship between the expectations of OFWs and the level of satisfaction in their receiving country. The results of the study revealed that the majority of the respondents are female, 36 to 50 years old, from Italy, and have stayed for 1 to 5 years in the receiving country.
