The Challenges Women Face in their Daily Lives

by Frank Newport

1,205 women speak

GALLUP NEWS SERVICE

PRINCETON, NJ -- Women in America today are most concerned about money issues, their families, their health, and the problems of time management and stress, according to a March survey conducted by Gallup for women.com. The survey asked American women the following question: "Thinking about your own life -- what is the biggest challenge you personally face in your daily life today?" The results show that women have a wide variety of issues that challenge them as they go about their daily lives, but that several -- particularly economic issues and family concerns -- dominate. The top seven categories of concerns are as follows:

Money: 26% of women are faced most directly by economic concerns today, including such things as the cost of living, meeting financial needs, and high taxes

Family: 22% of women's most pressing concern is their family

Health: 15% of women's most pressing daily concern is their health

Time and Stress: 14% of women are most concerned about stress, managing their time, getting things done, and balancing their lives

Job and Career: 8% of women are most concerned about their job and career

Education: 7% of women are most concerned about education and schooling -- both for themselves and their children

Equality and Equal Rights: 4% of women are most concerned about equality, equal opportunity and discrimination

What follows are the actual verbatim responses of the 1,205 women interviewed in the sample, as recorded by Gallup interviewers and typed into the computer.

Survey Methods
The results reported below are based on telephone interviews with a randomly selected national sample of 1,205 women, 18 years and older, conducted February 23-27, 2000. For results based on this sample, one can say with 95 percent confidence that the maximum error attributable to sampling and other random effects is plus or minus 3 percentage points. In addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.
