Given differences in values about work and family time, we hypothesize that Americans will experience greater family demand, which will have greater impact on work-family conflict, whereas the Chinese will experience greater work demand, which will have the greater impact on work-family conflict. The results of a survey of working men and women in the two countries generally supported the hypothesis; however, work demand did not differ significantly between the two countries and did not have a greater effect than family demand on work-family conflict in China.
