Nilgün Anafarta, Ayse Kuruüzüm

Abstract


This study investigates the impact of several demographic factors (gender, age, marital status, position, number
of children and employment of the spouse) on work-family conflict and family-work conflict. The study includes
the employees in manufacturing and service sectors in Antalya. According to the results in this study, the level of
work-family conflict of males and females is high, and no statistically meaningful difference is found between
their means. Logistic regression analysis shows that the log of odds of males experiencing work-family conflict
is negatively correlated with education and job tenure, but positively correlated with marital status. The log of
odds of females experiencing work-family conflict is negatively correlated with education whereas it is
positively correlated with marital status. Job tenure has an impact on family-work conflict of males, and age of
children and having to care elderly parents are noted to have an impact on family-work conflict of females.
