Family, Work, and Quality of Life

Thursday, 19 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
RC55 Social Indicators (host committee)

Language: English

Individuals undertake a variety of roles in work and family domains. The multiple social and economic roles that one assumes suggest the wide range of choices and constraints in family life, work conditions, and borader society. Given the sharp rise in dual-earner families and extended work hours, work-family conflicts increasingly affect the quality of life of employees and their families. This session invites papers that explore the effects of family, work, and conflicting roles on the quality of life. Papers that examine how the associations between family responsibilities, work demands and the quality of life vary in different social contexts are especially welcome.
