The study aimed to define the level of social adaptation and future anxiety in light of COVID-19 pandemic

among members of the Arab community. The study sample consisted of (2662) individuals distributed over

various Arab countries. The sample was chosen by the snowball method. To achieve the aim of the study, the

researchers built two scales (social adaptation scale and future anxiety scale).The validity of the two scales

was verified by using the exploratory factor analysis, where the social adjustment scale produced three factors

and the future anxiety scale produced two factors by using the descriptive approach.

The results indicated that members of Arab society enjoy high social adaptation and future. The results also

showed statistically significant differences for the variables on the social adjustment scale (gender, nationality,

country of residence, nature of work, and marital status), so the differences were in favor of (females, Saudi

Arabia country, the government employee, and married people), respectively. Furthermore, there were

statistically significant differences for the variables (gender, nationality, country of residence, educational

qualification, nature of work, age category, and marital status) on the scale of future anxiety (females, Egypt,

and the secondary school stage and the age category under 20 years), respectively.
