OBJECTIVES: To examine the distribution of work-to-family conflict (W-FC) across socio-demographic groups and a wide spectrum of occupations, and its associations with workers' burnout, self-rated health, and mental health status by sex. METHODS: A cross-sectional household survey of representative employees was conducted in 2013. A standardized questionnaire was administered to collect information. RESULTS: W-FC was high in employees aged 35 to 44 years old and in certain occupational groups. Long working hours, rotating work shift, high work demands, high job control, low workplace justice, and family care burden were risk factors for W-FC, and high W-FC score was significantly associated with burnout, poor self-rated health, and minor mental disorder. CONCLUSIONS: To improve workers' health, it is essential to identify high risk groups and adopt measures to reduce conflicts between work and family life.
