Set A:
- fit between preferred and actual working hours
- 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
O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d = Set B: (N = 70859)
- neuroticism
- agreeableness
- conscientiousness
- extraversion
- openness to experience
O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d = Set C:
- birth cohort
O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d = Set D:
- interaction: hours match*work orientation
O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d = Set E:
- interaction: hours match*work-care combinations
O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d = Interaction effect with fit between preferred and actual working hours: underworked respondents score lower on SWB (vs good fit & home centered).

Fixed effects analysis yields similar results.
