Question 6: Is there a relationship between the set of variables (task differentiation
of family household tasks and child-related tasks, violated expectations, role
dissatisfaction, marital disaffection, individual well-being, age, infant age, and income
level) and the set of couple conflict type variables (volatile type score, validating type
score, conflict-avoiding type score, and hostile type score)?
This final research question was answered through a canonical correlation
procedure. The analysis examined the relationship between the explanatory variable set
(household task differentiation, child-related task differentiation, role dissatisfaction,
couples' averaged violated expectations, marital disaffection, individual well-being, age,
infant age, and income level) and the outcome variable set (the volatile, validating,
conflict-avoiding, and hostile couple conflict type scores). The canonical correlation
analysis produced four canonical variates describing the relationship between the
explanatory set and the outcome set. Multivariate F test approximations tested a null
hypothesis that all the canonical correlations were equal to zero. The results supported the
rejection of this null hypothesis, and can be found in Table 4-15.
