Household and family work and need for rehabilitation

In a recent paper, Cynthia Richter examined associations between household and family work and rehabilitation needs. In her analyses, she included nearly 2,000 participants of the Third Socialmedical Panel of Employees. The strain of household and family work was stronger among women. High stress from family work was associated with nearly threefold increased odds for self-reported need for rehabilitation among women. Among men, self-reported need for rehabilitation was two times higher for high family work stress.
