LIFE ROLES, WELL-BEING AND ORGANIZATIONAL SUPPORT O R I G I N A L P A P E R IJOMEH 2018; 31(3) 285 questions were included in the analyses; data for the vari- able length of marriage was missing). In the first block re - spondents’ marriage duration and the number of children were entered as control variables. In the next 3 blocks, oc- cupational role commitment, parental role commitment and marital role commitment, respectively, were entered as predictors of life satisfaction, i.e., exhaustion as crite- rion variables. In the Results section only the last model or Model 4 was presented because it contained all obtained data in the analysis, i.e., the data from the previous mod- els, Model 1, Model 2 and Model 3. Moderator effect of family-supportive organization perception was tested us- ing the test of differences in regression coefficients among models proposed by Clogg et al. [29]. RESULTS In the Table 1 basic descriptive statistics of research vari- ables are presented. As it could be seen, life satisfaction, parental and marital role commitment were relatively highly expressed if compared to the scale mean which was 4 (ranging from 1 to 7). Occupational role com- mitment and exhaustion were slightly above the scale mean of 4. The hierarchical multiple linear regression analysis (Ta- ble 2) revealed that only occupational role commitment was a significant predictor of life satisfaction among by the authors is above α = 0.8. Reliability coefficients ob - tained in this research were α = 0.5 for occupational role subscale and α = 0.7 for parental role subscale and marital role subscale, respectively. Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) [25] with 5 items was applied to measure global life satisfaction. Respon- dents gave their answers on a 7-point Likert scale where higher score indicated higher life satisfaction. As stated by the authors, SWLS had good psychometric properties, i.e., high internal consistency and high temporal reliability. Cronbach’s α reliability of SWLS in this study was 0.7. The subscale of Oldenburg Burnout Inventory [27] with 8 items aimed to assess exhaustion was used for mea- suring this construct. Responses were given on a 7-point Likert scale with higher obtained scores indicating higher expressed exhaustion. The authors reported acceptable reliability (Cronbach’s α) of this subscale. Its internal consistency in this research was α = 0.66. Statistical data analysis Four hierarchical multiple linear regression analyses (2 among participants with positive family-supportive or- ganizational perception and other 2 among participants with negative family-supportive organizational perception) were conducted in order to test proposed associations among study variables (only participants who answered all Table 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
