Higher Education Faculty/Staff and Stress - Differences Among Women and Men


Here is an interesting table focused on stress and the female faculty member. Just look at the differences between male and female faculty members and stress in higher education. Here's the interesting aspect, I do not see ANYTHING related to roles outside of work - family, church, community service, etc.
Percentage Reporting Some or Extensive Stress Related to Certain Job Duties
Duty/Issue Creating StressMenWomen
Teaching load47.557.9
Research and publishing67.185.7
Review and promotion44.865.3
Committee work61.674.7

Do these percentages coincide with your experiences in higher education (either as a male or female)?
