Work-Family Conflict: Does Educational Attainment Influence the Amount of Negative Spillover?
Erarslan, Ayse Burcin
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association (104th, San Francisco, CA, Aug 7-11, 2009)
Using a data from a purposive sample of 216 women and 218 men in Turkey, the relationship between educational attainment and the amount of negative spillover from job-to-home and home-to-job was examined. It was hypothesized that men and women with higher levels of education have less amount of negative spillover in both directions. Certain work and family characteristics were included into the multiple regression analysis to see the net effect of educational attainment. Results indicated general support for the hypothesis, with significant findings revealing that women experience more negative spillover in both directions than men. Among the work characteristics, perceived time pressure had a significant effect in reducing job-to-home spillover for both sexes. Researchers need to be aware of the possible gender differences in experiencing work-family conflict and the positive impact of educational attainment needs to be taken into account for reducing conflict between these domains.
