Operationalization
measured with an index of five items that has been used in previous empirical studies (Hill 2005; Voydanoff 2005). Respondents were asked the following questions: (a) In the past 3 months, how often have you not had enough time for your family or other important people in your life because of your job? (b) In the past 3 months, how often has work kept you from doing as good a job at home as you could? (c) In the past 3 months, how often have you not had the energy to do things with your family or other important people in your life because of your job? (d) In the past 3 months, how often has your job kept you from concentrating on important things in your family or personal life? (e) In the past 3 months, how often have you not been in as good a mood as you would like to be at home because of your job? Responses ranged from 1 = very often to 5 = never.
(Signs were reversed: a higher score means a higher work-life balance)
