CPRN report - Work-life Balance - How the Regions Stack Up

New
indicators on CPRN's website provide some answers. This is the second
set of indicators on Work-Life Balance
(http://www.jobquality.ca/balance_e/balance.stm) by Region in Canada
drawn from the research report "Where to Work in Canada? An Examination
of Regional Differences in Work Life Practices" by Linda Duxbury
(Carleton University) and Chris Higgins (University of Western
Ontario).

The updates focus on the themes of Work-Life Conflict and Family Outcomes. CPRN examines four indicators:

  • role overload;
  • role interference (work interference with family, and family interference with work);
  • caregiver strain; 
  • family impact - on plans for family size and the timing of children.
