Exploratory Study of Relationships between Selected Aspects of Home Environment and Employment Criteria of the Husband.
Souder, Mary Fern Vanpool
The objectives of the study were to identify characteristics of home environment which appear to be related to employment history of the husband; test methods of obtaining information; and develop a rationale consistent with the findings and including hypotheses to be tested. Criteria for selecting a sample of 40 employees of a midwestern manufacturing firm in a non-metropolitan area were based on marital status, employment of wife, number of children, age, educational background, and earnings. The employees were divided into two groups based on salary level. The methods of analyzing the data were the development of case studies, comparison of the two criterion groups based on means, and an examination of intercorrelations among variables. Of the means for the home-environment variables, 80% were higher for Group 2 (higher salaries) than for Group 1. Additional home environment variables were positively related to one or more of employment variables: type of clothing worn by the husband to work, extent to which he selected his own clothing, number of suggestions by the wife for house improvement, number of newspapers and magazines received, educational level of the wife, and her attitude to her husband's job.
