This study examined the influence of employment status and presence of young children in the household on psychological health in a population-based sample of 3103 women aged 20-49 years.
Women were classified by employment status and parental status, thus creating four groups for comparison.
After excluding women reporting chronic diseases and women receiving sickness, rehabilitation, unemployment or disability benefits, analyses indicated that problems of coping, dissatisfaction with life, depression and loneliness were greatest among homemakers, particularly among those with young children.
Analyses adjusted for age, education, marital status and place of residence yielded similar results.
