||The effects of job and family conditions on cumulative fatigue of working mothers in double income family
||Mar. 2000, Vol.76, No.3, p.1-15. Illus. 33 ref.
||The objective of this study was to investigate the occupational and domestic factors which affect cumulative fatigue. It was hypothesized that the higher level of job-related stress and family related stress were both associated with a greater extent of cumulative fatigue, and that even if job related stress was high, the high quality of family life moderates the increase of cumulative fatigue. In the study sample consisting of 1018 working mothers with young children in double-income families who responded to a questionnaire, both hypotheses were largely supported. Higher scores of negative support, lower feeling of reward at workplace, work addiction, and higher family life stress were directly related to greater cumulative fatigue, although overtime working hours, husband's sharing of housework and childcare, and wife's sex-role orientation showed only indirect association with cumulative fatigue. Also, lower levels of family-life stress were found to moderate the increase of cumulative fatigue.
