Abstract

The impact of gender and life-cycle stage on three components of work-family conflict was examined using a sample of 3,616 respondents. Significant differences were found for gender and life cycle. For all components of work-family conflict, an interaction between gender and life-cycle was observed. For men, levels of work-family conflict were moderately lower in each successive life-cycle stage. For women, levels were similar in the two early life-cycle stages but were significantly lower in the later life-cycle stage.
