### Data Analysis:

Data Analysis MLOS 500B

### Analysis of the Work-Life Conflict Survey:

Analysis of the Work-Life Conflict Survey 30 responses received Not all surveys completed—some missing data. Information summaries from SurveyMonkey can be used to create all these graphs You do not have to perform statistical tests unless you want to do so

### Reporting Data:

Reporting Data Although demographic questions come last in surveys, they are the first reported. Easiest to report in graphs.

### Respondent Data:

Respondent Data Gender Males = 9 Females = 20 No Answer = 1 Age* 21-45=21 45+=8 No Answer=1 Ethnicity* Caucasian=23 Other=6 No Answer=1 Marital Status Single=5 Married=18 Separated/Divorced*=4 No Answer=3 * Categories were grouped because raw data didn’t provide a lot of information at this point.

### Creating a Pie Chart:

Creating a Pie Chart Click on the icon in PPT that looks like a chart Choose Pie Chart An Excel file will pop up Give names to each slice of the pie Numbers for each slice are in the summary of responses in Survey Monkey

### Creating Averages for Interval Data:

Creating Averages for Interval Data I did this by printing off each of the 30 responses and entering the data for each response into Excel. I then calculated the average response for each question. I did not include the missing responses, because the “0” would have lowered the averages.

### Work Life Conflict Questions:

Work Life Conflict Questions Average Score Mode (most frequent score) My organization equates high performance with extra hours on the job. 3.4 4—Agree, 11 responses After work, I come home too tired to do some of the things I’d like to do. 3.9 4—Agree, 10 responses On the job I have so much work to do that it takes away from my personal interests. 3.3 5—Strongly Agree, 7 responses 3—Neither Agree nor Disagree, 7 responses My family/friends dislike how often I am preoccupied with my work while I am at home. 2.9 4—Agree, 7 responses 3—Neither Agree nor Disagree, 7 responses 2—Disagree, 7 responses My work takes up time that I’d like to spend with family/friends. 3.3 4—Agree, 10 responses The demands of my job make it difficult to be relaxed all the time at home 3.3 4—Agree, 13 responses I often feel as though I have more work than I have time to do it in. 3.5 5—Strongly Agree, 9 responses

### What Conclusions Can You Draw?:

What Conclusions Can You Draw? The sample is largely Caucasian and female Half the respondents (n=15) were between 31-45 years of age It is not representative of the average American worker

### What Conclusions Can You Draw?:

What Conclusions Can You Draw? The majority of people in this sample work more than 40 hours a week. The majority of people in this sample are expected to respond to questions about work after they have left the office The majority of people in this sample receive no compensation for working more than 40 hours a week The average respondent in this sample does not express work-life conflict

### Limitations of Study:

Limitations of Study Convenience sample does not allow generalization to a population Questions should not have had a “neutral” response choice; forced choice would have provided better data It is possible that the number of hours worked is not the best indicator of work-life conflict. Other explanations: Support system Variety of tasks Supervisor’s style Ability to work at home when needed
