MetadataShow full item record
Heart attack is one of the most prevalent health issues in the United States today. It affects a broad range of people and is one of the leading causes of death (About Heart Attacks, 2016). This study looks at the effects of work-family conflict and socioeconomic status on the likelihood of heart attack using a hierarchical regression analysis and a literature review. The data for the analysis was gathered from MIDUS 3, which looked at the health and well-being of people from early adulthood to old age. This study found that there was an association between work-family conflict, socioeconomic status, and the likelihood of heart attack. This study can help further the understanding of heart attacks and promote preventative measures to help decrease their prevalence.
