Perceptions of Competence in Provider and Husband Roles for Men in the Middle Years.
Draughn, Peggy Saxton; And Others
In exploring the relationship between job and family, the impact of a man's perceptions of competency in both the husband and provider role were examined. Using a two-stage, stratified, representative sample design, interviewers collected data from middle-aged, married men. When perceived provider role competence was the dependent variable, the independent variable of occupational status was statistically significant. With perceived husband competence as the dependent variable, the independent variables of income, race and the interaction of race and wife's employment status were significant. There was a positive linear relationship between perceived marital competency and perceived job competency. (Author)
