The research study investigated the roles of cultural variations, self-esteem and gender in workfamily
conflict. Seven hundred and thirty six (736) self selected workers drawn from six
randomly selected federal institutions in three geo-political zones in Nigeria participated in the
study. The institutions include: Bayero University Kano and Kaduna polytechnic (Both in
North-West Nigeria), Federal University of Technology Owerri and University of Nigeria
Nsukka (Both in South-East Nigeria) and University of Ibadan and University of Lagos (Both in
South-West Nigeria). The participants consist of married male (n =425) and female (n=311)
representatives of the three cultural groups of interest (Hausa = 188, Igbo = 314 and Yoruba =
234). Two instruments were used to measure two out of the four factors in the study. The scales
included: Carlson, Kacmar and Williams’ (2000) work-family conflict scale and Hudson’s Index
of self-esteem measure (1982). Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to test for the influence
of the three main effects of cultural variations, self-esteem and gender on work-family conflict.
Results revealed that cultural variation had a significant influence on work-family conflict F (2,
724) = 5.04, P
