Gittman, Elizabeth
The motivations of 275 women who were employed full-time, employed part-time, homemakers full-time or vounteeer workers were studied. Analysis of variance was used to test for differences between motivational groups within employment status categories on the demographic variables of personal income, age, educational level and number of children and on the attitude variables of satisfaction with employment status, marital happiness, general happiness, husband's attitude, satisfaction with family relationships and sex role attitude. It was concluded that relationships existed between motivation for full-time employment and general happiness, between motivation for part-time employment and age of subject and number of children, between motivation for full-time homemaking and age of subject, number of children, satisfaction with employment status and husband's attitudes, and between motivation for volunteer work and satisfaction with family relationships. Analysis of variance was used to test for differences between the employment category groups (disregarding motivation) on the demographic and attitude variables. Differences between the groups were observed on the variables of number of children, educational level and personal income level. (Author)
