Family, work and well being (ESS2 2004, ESS5 2010)

These modules focus on the inter-relations between work, family and well-being. Exploring these relations in a comparative perspective should add not only to a general understanding of sources of satisfaction and psychological strain among European populations, but also to the role of national welfare regimes in this process. Hence, the aim of the modules is to provide insights into current issues of work, family and well-being and into the interactions between them. The module was first introduced in ESS2, and then repeated in ESS5 where it drew primarily on the 'work experience' and 'work-family' conflict sections of the previous double module, while retaining a number of key indicators with respect to household activity.
