As statistical analysis, the reliability of scales was calculated by Cronbach alpha coefficient, Independent Sample t test was conducted to calculate the percentage, frequency and the difference between two variables, Anova test was conducted to calculate the difference between variable more than two and correlation analysis was made to determine the relationships between variables.
In the obtained data, according to the gender variable, a statistically significant difference was found in sub dimension “life consists of only work” of Work-Life Balance scale (p<.05). This difference is caused by the fact that the average scores of women were higher than those of men. Besides, participants were determined to show statistically significant difference in the sub dimension “neglecting life” of Work-Life Balance scale according to their educational levels (p<.05). This difference was caused by the fact that average scores of middle school graduates were higher than those of the graduates of master’s program.
