This study examines the different impact of work on the physical and
psychological health of women and men: how men and women in business and
managerial professions perceive the pressures of their work environments
and what the consequences (e.g., depression, anxiety, somatic complaints,
and drug and alcohol abuse) of these stresses are for the individual. The
results indicate significant differences between the working men and women
studied in job tension, coping strain, role conflict, and health status but
not in styles of coping.
