FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH WOMEN'S PERCEPTION OF THEIR PROBLEMS.
KRUEMPEL, BEVERLY JEANNE
THIS STUDY SOUGHT TO DETERMINE (1) FAMILY AND PERSONAL PROBLEMS IDENTIFIED BY WOMEN AND (2) THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THESE PROBLEMS AND THE RESPONDENTS' BACKGROUND. A MULTI-STAGE PROBABILITY SAMPLING PROCEDURE WAS USED. DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM A SAMPLE OF 611 ADULTS IN COLUMBIA COUNTY, WISCONSIN. THIS INCLUDED 340 WOMEN USED IN THE STUDY. HAVIGHURST'S "DEVELOPMENTAL TASK" CONCEPT WAS USED TO CLASSIFY THE PROBLEMS IDENTIFIED BY THE WOMEN. YOUNG WOMEN (21-35) IDENTIFIED PROBLEMS RELATED TO REARING CHILDREN AND MANAGING A HOME. MIDDLE-AGED WOMEN (36-55) IDENTIFIED "ASSISTING TEENAGE CHILDREN TO BECOME RESPONSIBLE AND HAPPY ADULTS" AND "ESTABLISHING AND MAINTAINING AN ECONOMIC STANDARD OF LIVING" AS THEIR MAJOR PROBLEMS. WOMEN OF LATER MATURITY (56 AND OVER) WERE CONCERNED MAINLY WITH ADJUSTING TO OLD AGE CONDITIONS. WOMEN WITH LOWER EDUCATION EXPERIENCED MORE PROBLEMS IN THE MOTHER-ROLE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE CHILDEN WERE YOUNG. WOMEN IN THE OPEN-COUNTRY AS OPPOSED TO THOSE IN CITIES AND VILLAGES INDICATED MORE PROBLEMS WITH (1) TEENAGE CHILDREN AND (2) MANAGING A HOME. WITH WOMEN OF LATER MATURITY, LOWER INCOME WAS ASSOCIATED WITH DECREASING STRENGTH AND HEALTH, AND RETIREMENT. (DOCUMENT INCLUDES TABLES, A BIBLIOGRAPHY, AND THE QUESTIONNAIRE.) THIS MASTERS THESIS IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN, MADISON. 82 PAGES. (AUTHOR)
