Abstract

This thesis examines the dimensionality underlying the construct of work-family conflict. Some previous research has suggested that work-family conflict is a unidimensional construct. Other research has suggested that work-family conflict may reflect two distinct sets of dimensions, one based on directionality and the other based on type of conflict. No studies, however, have examined all of these possibilities simultaneously. Using data gathered from nonfaculty university employees, the presence of dimensional structure of work-family conflict was investigated. Support was found for viewing work-family conflict as a multidimensional construct composed of six factors measuring both directionality and type of conflict. Although further scale development is necessary, items measuring each of the dimensions are provided.
