Summary/Abstract: The effort is directed towards displaying different factors of maturity in maturity. The research had a purpose to investigate the differences in investigating the resilience of the respondents from wounds, middle and poor maturity in relation to sex, the level of education, spouse and work status. The survey was conducted on samples of 1612 inhabitants of Serbia from 37 towns and villages, of two poles, aged 27-70 years and at all educational levels. A PORPOS battery is used, a dedicated instrument of 389 items and dusts, which, in addition to the second, contains a short scale for estimation of resiliency, as well as a list of general data. The results show that respondents with a deep maturity in relation to those of early and medium maturity are less resilient in terms of all examined factors at a statistically significant level. Specifically, women in the mid-mature period, who will be compared with the other two subgroups of their females, have the greatest resilience, and the females in their mature maturity, compared with the other subgroups of men, have the smallest. Likewise, respondents in a deep maturity are less resilient than the other two subgroups in relation to all levels of education, except for the basic one when they are not married and caregivers. In addition, the respondents in early maturity with the highest level of education are less resilient than those who are in middle maturity. The results obtained generally suggest that the level of resistance changes in the course of the age and that sociodemographic factors should be included in its comprehension.
