From: Validation of the Schieman and Young measurement scales for work contact, work-family conflict, working conditions, psychological distress and sleep problems in construction industry professionals

Constructs Work experience Frustration at work Work pre-occupation Co-worker support at work
1. Job autonomy and control (JAC) .39*** −.20*** .03 .24***
2. Job pressure (JP) −.15** .37*** .44*** −.31***
3. Work contact (WC) .14** .25*** .41*** −.15**

5. Psychological distress (PD) −.19*** .64*** .41*** −.36***
6. Sleep problems (SP) −.03 .52*** .39*** −.28***
  1. Notes: *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001 (one-tailed test). The magnitude of the relationships is defined as follows:
  2. trivial (r < .10), small (r = .10 to .29), medium (r = .30 to.49), and large (r ≥ .50)
