Sex Differences in Occupational Stress: A Meta-Analytic Review

Joseph J. Martocchio, Anne M. O'Leary

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Meta-analysis was performed on 15 studies that examined sex differences in occupational stress. Contrary to previous qualitative literature reviews, these results indicate that there are no sex differences in experienced and perceived work stress. Moderator analyses were conducted. Because null results were obtained, a discussion of empirical and theoretical shortcomings in the sex-occupational stress literature was presented for consideration by future researchers.
