Employment Characteristics of Both Spouses and Depression in Two-Job Families.
Keith, Pat M. Schafer, Robert B.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v45 n4 p877-84 Nov 1983
Examined subjective and objective characteristics of employment in relation to depression in 135 two-job families. Results showed employment characteristics of each spouse had little effect on the other. Subjective factors were more predictive of life satisfaction, and social comparisons resulting in unfavorable assessment of outcomes were related to depression. (JAC)
