Abstract

The present study addressed to the issue of sex differences in the psychological well-being of Chinese dual-employed parents in Hong Kong. Various measures of psychological well-being based upon negative (i.e. presence of psychiatric symptoms) and postive mental health criteria ( positive psychological health) were used. Results showed that the employed mothers displayed significantly more psychological and somatic symptoms, and they indicated less purpose in life than the employed fathers. The present findings add further empirical evidence to the sex differences of dual-employed parents and the implications on future researches were discussed.
