CHANGE in work satisfaction is hardly related to 
CHANGE in positive and negative affect between T1 
and T3. (Relation to change in summed ABS not 
computed).

Change in affect expressed in change () in 
average ridits (RT) which are comparable to means. 
Ridit analysis compares distribution in category 
with distribution in total sample. RT above .50 
means relative increase in happiness. RT below 
.50 relative decrease.

- fit between preferred and actual working hours
- marital status
- age 
- age squared/100
- number of children 0-15 years
- unemployment rate
- born in east-Germany
- foreigner status
- education
- age youngest child
- objective health

Set B: (N = 70859)
- neuroticism
- agreeableness
- conscientiousness
- extraversion
- openness to experience

Set C:
- birth cohort

Set D: 
- interaction: hours match*work orientation

Set E:
- interaction: hours match*work-care combinations

Interaction effect with fit between preferred and 
actual working hours: only overworked women who 
value work as important score significantly lower 
on happiness than women satisfied with their 
working hours, while being home centered.

Fixed effects analysis yields similar results.

B's reflect the average statistics when importance 
of work is averaged for T1 and T2

B's mean that unemployed individuals who consider 
work:
-'not important' are the most happy 
-'very important' are the least happy

B -1.2 means that unemployment corresponds with a 
lower happiness by -1.2 points on scale 0-10 for 
individuals who consider that work is very 
important for their well-being.

CONTROL VARIABLES:
Set A:
- number of hours per week working and caring
- importance of having children/success in a job
- marital status
- age 
- age squared/100
- number of children 0-15 years
- unemployment rate
- born in east-Germany
- foreigner status
- education
- age youngest child
- objective health

Set B: (N = 70859)
- neuroticism
- agreeableness
- conscientiousness
- extraversion
- openness to experience

Set C:
- birth cohort

Set D: 
- interaction: hours match*work orientation

Set E:
- interaction: hours match*work-care combinations

Interaction effect with workcare orientations: 
only underworked work-centered and adaptive women 
and women with unplanned careers (drifters) score 
lower on SWB (vs women with a good fit & home 
centered)


Interaction effect with work-care combinations: 
only overworked women who
work without caring duties and women combining 
work and care but working more than 24 hours a 
week score significantlylower on SWB (vs women not 
working nor caring and good fit).


Fixed effects analysis yields similar results.

Operationalization
Porters Need Satisfaction Questionnaire was expanded by 
an item on 'physical safety'. The questionnaire 
provided 16 sets of items reflecting five of Maslow's 
human needs (security, safety, social, autonomy, esteem 
and self-actualization). Each of the items was scored 
on three dimensions:        1.How much of the 
characteristic is   there now connected with your job?  
  
2.How much of the characteristic do you   think should 
be connected with your    job?
    
3.How important is this       job-characteristic for 
you?

For the present study, five need deficiency scores were 
calculated by substracting the individual's response to 
the second part from the response to the first part. 
The individual score for each need deficiency was then 
calculated by averaging the responses across those 
items compromising each need scale (Item responses were 
based on a 7-point rating scale).
