The Residential Satisfaction of Residents in High-rise Mixed-use Apartments
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 1~12
This study investigates residents' living satisfaction with high-rise, mixed-use apartments built in the structures of reinforced concrete construction(RC) and with steel framed, reinforced concrete construction(SRC). The following study results were obtained: 1) Residents expressed below average satisfaction (below 3.0) with the common-area landscape and environmentally-friendly factors, children's playground and its facilities, community service for residents' by the management offices and utility plan. 2) According to the satisfaction of sound environment, residents of the SRC group expressed above average satisfaction. It can be concluded that noise problems around the residential area of the SRC group was well solved in this study. However, the residents of the SRC group expressed low satisfaction with the freshness of indoor air, humidity, and smell in the living quarters. 3) High-rise, mixed-use apartments should accommodate a familial life cycle, be designed as an environmentally friendly resting place in harmony with city life, and provide various communal programs for residents.
A Study on Clothing for Patients
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 13~21
Clothing for hospitalized patients is very important because they wear it while they suffer from various kinds of pain and treatments. Therefore, the clothing for patients has to be comfortable and functional as well as well designed. Also correct sizes, suitable materials and convenient fastening devices are features to be considered for proper patient's clothing. However the currently used patient's clothing is provided without sufficient considerations for patient's needs, and is more concerned with price competitiveness. The purpose of this survey was to find out which design and functional features of patient's clothing are favored by patients, doctors and nurses. The results will be useful to develop improved patient's clothing. Based on the results, the following suggestions for improved patient's clothing are made. 1. Gender differentiation and a greater variety of size codes are required for better fit. 2. Depending on various treatments, different functional design features have to be applied. 3. Aesthetic needs should be satisfied for the psychological comfort of patients. 4. Materials should be selected considering required physical properties such as washing duration, dimensional stability and contaminant prevention.
The Relationship between Maternal Parenting Attitudes and Social Competence in Preschool Children with Disabilities
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 23~42
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between maternal parenting attitudes and social competence in preschool children with disabilities. Among 3-to 7-year-old preschool children with disabilities in Daegu, 121 pairs of mother-child subjects were selected. The major findings of this study are as follows. First, there was a significant difference in the control area of maternal parenting attitudes on PMT according to child's age. Second, there were significant differences in the teacher ratings of social competence according to the severity of disability, child's age and father's education level. Third, the creativity area of maternal attitudes was significantly correlated with social competence.
The Dyeability, Antibacterial Activity, and Deodorization of Chrysanthemum Boreale for Cotton and Silk Fabrics
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 43~53
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the dyeability, antibacterial activity, and deodorization of cotton and silk fabrics dyed with extracted solution from Chrysanthemum boreale. The results are as follows： 1. The optimum conditions of dyeing temperature and time for the cotton fabrics were 90
and 60minutes, while those of the silk fabrics were 60
and 30 minutes respectively. 2. The K/S values of cotton fabrics were slightly higher than those of silk fabrics. The K/S values of both fabrics were slightly increased by mordanting with Cr but were decreased by mordanting with Cu and Fe 3. The colors of the cotton and silk fabrics changed from GY to Y. In both cases, the values of the fabric colors were lowered, and the values of the colors continued to be lowered with Cu and Fe. The chroma and color difference of both fabrics were high and were further increased by mordanting with Cu. 4. The fastness to dry-cleaning and rubbing of the cotton and silk fabrics was very good. The fastness to washing of both fabrics was good except when mordanted with Fe. The fastness to perspiration of both fabrics was fairly good, but the fastness to acid perspiration was poorer than that to the alkaline perspiration. The fastness to light of both fabrics was very poor. 5. The cotton and silk fabrics showed excellent antibacterial activity. Both fabrics mordanted with Cu showed perfect antibacterial activity. 6. The deodorization of the silk fabrics was very good, and that of the silk fabrics mordanted with Cu and Al was excellent, while the deodorization of the cotton fabrics was fairly good.
Smoking, Alcohol Consumption and Dietary Behavior of College Students in the Kyungsan Area
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 55~72
Alcohol has as much effect on our lives as the different taste for foods that people have all of the world. Recently, the interest about drinking habits has increased with the rise in health problems for college students with poor health related behavior. The purpose of this study was to evaluate alcohol consumption, smoking and eating behavior of college students in the Kyungsan area. This survey was administered through questionnaires, and the subjects were 177 male and 189 female college students. The self-administered questionnaire was composed of questions concerning social-demographic factors, general characteristics, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption and eating behavior. The data were analyzed by
-test and t-test. According to the survey results, almost of all of the survey subjects drank alcohol. The mean alcohol consumption level per day for male students (33.9
29.7g) were significantly higher than for the female students (18.5
16.5g), and more than 39.6% of the subjects drank alcohol 1-3 days a week. Alcohol consumption changed the students eating habits. Most students had dietary problems such as fast eating, skipping meal and spending too much money on fast food. The survey about eating behavior of the students showed the male students had more problems when compared with female students. Alcohol consumption levels and alcohol dependence showed a significant positive correlation with smoking cigarettes (r=0.386, p＜0.001). The correlation coefficient between alcohol consumption and eating behavior was negatively correlated with skipping meals (r=-0.121, p＜0.001). However, there were significant and positive correlations with overeating when students were depressed (r=0.130, p＜0.05), with eating meals when watching TV or videos (r=0.085) and with spending money on fast food(r=0.235, p＜0.235). The results indicate that health related behaviors of college students in the present study were fairly good. More attention should be given to college students and their habits of skipping meal, alcohol drinking and smoking, and the fairly good students can act as a model for correct dietary behavior so as to improve overall student health.
The Influences of Family Resources on Caregiving Stress for Dementia Elderly in Homemakers
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 73~88
The purpose of this study was to explore the influences of family resources, i.e. objective resources, perceived adequacy of resources, locus of control, social support, family cohesion, and family adaptability on caregiving stress for dementia elderly in homemakers. The subjects of this study were 141 married women who had cared for dementia elderly. The survey method was a questionnaire. And the data was analyzed by means of Cronbach's, factor analysis, and multiple regression. The main findings were as follows： First, Homemakers' caregiving stress was positively correlated to their academic background and monthly income, but negatively correlated to perceived adequacy of human resources, perceived adequacy of material resource, psychical support resource from relatives, and internal locus of control. Second, caregiving stress of homemakers was affected by family cohesion, monthly income, psychical support resource from relatives, perceived adequacy of human resources, and external locus of control.
A Study on the Wearing Conditions of Golf Gloves and a Proposal for a Functional Glove Design
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 89~101
The aim of this study is to investigate problems with both fit and abrasion of golf gloves through a survey of golf usage among golfers over the age of 30, as well as by analyzing the golf glove industry with an emphasis on the size system and marketing situation. In addition, this study aims to suggest the basic raw materials for improving the design of golf gloves through physical properties inspections. The results of the analyses support the following suggestions. First of all, dissatisfaction arose from improper measurement in glove length. The survey showed that most problems occur in the pinky finger, while only the length of the middle finger of the glove is recorded based on Korean Standard Anthropometries Measurement. Clearly, proper measurements of every finger need to be included in the system. Secondly, the survey results clearly indicated regions 7(palm area) and 3(second finger area) as the areas requiring reinforcement. While the method of patching another layer with the same material is commonly used in the current glove market, materials other than genuine leather are unable to complement the abrasion. This study suggests that another layer of refill type genuine leather, which scored best in the physical properties inspection, needs to be patched onto regions 7 and 3.
Characteristics and Classification of Head Shape of College Female Student for the Construction of Headwears
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 103~110
Among accessaries, headwear is important to protect one's face and head from the sun, wind and cold. This study was performed to provide fundamental data on college female students' head shape by classifying their head shapes and by analyzing the characteristics of each head shape in order to improve the fitness of headwear. The subjects were 193 Korean college female students. The subjects were directly measured anthropometrically and indirectly analyzed photo-graphically. By direct and indirect measurement, 5 factors were extracted through factor analysis and those factors comprised 76.34% of the total variance. 3 clusters as their head shape were categorized using 5 factor scores by cluster analysis. Type 1 was characterized by long head type and having smallest head thickness and head girth. Type 2 had average size and the most round-head type. Type 3 was characterized by short head type and the largest head thickness and head girth.
A Study on Dress Design from the Development of Materials Focused on Tapestry
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 111~121
This study focused on the development of creative materials by applying tapestry to produce original and high-grade dresses with consideration the modems' tendency to place high value on personal taste and style. The development remained sensitive to current trends and attempted to expand into high value-added dresses. Materials in modem fashion design, as a basis of the fashion industry, can lead to a current of new fashion and produce novel and creative ideas by stimulating the designers' creativity. Designers can diversely express a form according to their intention, since tapestry allows the expression of various feelings of texture and forms according to the combination mode of technique, structure and materials on a basic plane. Moreover, tapestry encrourages the development of varied designs because it can effectively display the texture and color of a textile surface through the careful selection of materials even under the same technique. Tapestry can apply forms similar to a textile's basic structure to fashion design and can create high added value with the merit of being 'handmade'.
A Study on the Qualities of Infant Day-Care Centers and Caregiver′s Interactions with Infants
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 123~136
The purposes of this study were to investigate the qualities of infant day-care centers and the caregivers' interactions with infants. Forty-six day-care centers from Seoul, Daejeon, and Daegu were enrolled in this study. Two kinds of methods were used for data collection; one was the Assessment Scale for Infant/Toddler Care Center developed by Choi and the other was the Qualitative Rating Scale for Caregiver used in the NICHD Early Child Care Project. Frequency, percentile, Crollbach's, one-way ANOVA, and Pearson's correlation were calculated for data analysis. Qualities on 5 factors of infant day-care centers were ranged from 3.44∼4.35, the highest with health managing and the lowest with support system in the Likert 5-point scales. Sensitivity, developmental stimulation and positive regard to child, which are the caregiver's positive interactions with infants were rated minimally or usually characteristic. In addition, intrusiveness, detachment, negative regard to child and flatness, which are negative interactions with infants were rated never or minimally characteristic. Finally, some suggestions for good quality and facilitation of infant care were made.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 42, issue 6, 2004, Pages 137~149
This research analyzed the tasks performed by firm's consumer department, evaluation, and efficiency of those tasks. In addition, regression analysis was employed to find what factors influence the level of evaluation and efficiency of tasks performed by firm's consumer department. Research results summarized as follows. First, two thirds of the appropriate amount of resources and systems for the consumer department were equipped and the score of evaluating for consumer counseling tasks was high. Second, the amounts of resources and systems being equipped by the firm's consumer department were greater in insurance companies and firms with more employees, firms with 70% to 100% female employees in the consumer department, firms that listed their stocks, and firms with the consumer department located higher than the second floor. Third, the score of evaluating the tasks performed by the firm's consumer department was greater in firms that listed their stocks, owned great resources and systems, and had a higher degree of work satisfaction. Finally, the task of consumer counseling performed by the consumer department turned out to be effective in firms that listed their stocks, were recently established, and owned necessary resources and systems.
