- This study was designed to examine relationships between roles of employed married women in Seoul, South Korea, perceptions of their work role, coping patterns, and levels of depression. The convenience sample contained 382 women, aged 25-55 years, who were living with their husbands and working at least 20 hr weekly. Participants completed five questionnaires: demographic, Center for Epidemiological Studies - Depression Scale, Index of Sex-Role Orientation, Role Sharing, and Coping Strategies. Multiple regression analysis revealed several statistically significant relationships. Higher levels of depression were found in women who perceived motherhood and career roles as incompatible, those who coped by working harder, and those who spent less time helping children with homework. Women who owned their houses had lower levels of depression. © 2004 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
