Abstract

This study examines relationships between work role characteristics, family structure demands, and work/family conflict. The analyses use data from 757 married men and 270 married women interviewed in the 1977 Quality of Employment Survey. The findings indicate that amount and scheduling of work time, job demands, and the presence of children in the home are related to work/family conflict among men and women. Perceived control over the work situation buffers some relationships between work role characteristics and work/family conflict. Work role characteristics and family structure demands contribute additively to work/family conflict; family structure demands do not exacerbate relationships between work role characteristics and work/family conflict.
