Study on the Gender Differences of Financial Risk Tolerance
Lee, June-Young ; Jung, Ji-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1~13
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.10.001
This paper examined how men and women differ in the attitude and behaviour of financial risk tolerance. The results showed that women were less risk seeking than men in financial risk tolerance. The results of the investment simulation indicated that men invested in higher risk assets like stock. In contrast, women prefered to invest in lower risk assets like real estate. The results of multiple regression analysis showed that if investors have the propensity to take more risk they allocated their money to higher risk assets in the simulation. This analysis also showed that the surveyed respondents invested in risky assets if they had experience in high risk investment in the past.

DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.10.015
The predominant concern of the study consists in:(1)the positive direct effects of both individual`s intimacy toward parents and individual`s self-efficacy of care-giving roles on individual`s care-giving commitment; (2)the positive mediating effect of individual`s self-efficacy of care-giving on individual`s care-giving commitment; (3)the moderating effect of the degree of unhealthy condition of individual`s elderly parents on each causal relationship. For conducting this study, a survey method was used on 318 males with parents at the aged of 45-60, residing in Daegu and KyungPook. In order for subjects to verify research questions, structural equation models were explored. The findings of the study supported the direct, indirect effect and moderating effects, which suggested in research questions. Participants with unhealthy parents showed greater tendency in terms of influencing their intimacy toward parents on care giving commitment than participants with healthy parents did. The above findings claimed our attention in that provided a range of practical implication.

The principal objective of this study was to evaluate the consumption patterns, the importance of product properties, and the satisfaction levels of blackberry and mulberry fruit beverage products(BMBPs) in the Jeonbuk area, Korea. Self-administered questionnaires were collected from 294 customers(male 40.8%, female 59.2%) residing at Jeonju in Jeonbuk area. Descriptive and comparative statistical analyses were completed using SPSS PC program(version 19.0). Approximately, 61.6% of participants consumed BMBPs 1-2times a year. Only 1.7% of participants consumed BMBPs everyday. The main information source about BMBPs was `families/friends`. About 58.8% of participants responded that the main reason for purchasing BMBPs was `for health`. The result indicated the overall importance level(3.94) was higher than the satisfaction level(3.41)(p < .001). The importance and satisfaction levels of the older group (50`s) were significantly higher than the levels of younger group(20-30`s)(p < .01 ; p < .05). According to the IPA(Importance-Performance Anslysis), `price` and `credibility` of companies were the most important properties that had to be changed as soon as possible to increase satisfaction with BMBPs. Therefore, to increase BMBPs`-consumption, quality improvements on these products through cooperation between BMBPscompanies, the regional government, and research institutions are necessary.

Shin, Kyoung-Hee ; Suh, Chu-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 10, 2011, Pages 49~56
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.10.049
The purpose of this study is to research the difference between the size suggested by brand uniforms and the size suitable for high school girls. We compared and analyzed the size system of brand uniforms after researching the wearing conditions of uniforms of 4 brands (A, B, C, D) in order to establish a size system of brand uniforms that fits different body types of teenagers. First, we conduct research on the actual condition of brand uniforms worn by high school girls, and investigate unsatisfactory factors and problems. Second, we actually measure the uniform size of each brand and analyze measurement differences between each brand. Our results show each brand uniform has different size specifications and the importance of appropriate size specification is greater as students select uniform based on design and brand awareness rather than body size. Compared with the average body size the skirt and especially the blouse is much smaller with no extra room compared with standard size 85 blouses and size 71 skirts. Therefore, the adjustment of size specification is needed in brand school uniforms. However, a larger scale investigation is needed as this study was conducted with a limited sample size.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 10, 2011, Pages 57~69
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.10.057
The purpose of the present study was to examine married female immigrants` life style and marriage satisfaction on the perception of preparing their old age. We also investigated how socio-demographic factors influence their Preparation for old age. For the study, -data were collected from 350 questionnaires obtained from female immigrants living in Chungcheongnam-do. Cronbach`s
tests were conducted for reliability, and regressional analysis was conducted to test our hypotheses. The results of this study shows that there is evidence of relations among the sub-variables. However, we found attitudes to safety and material pursuit are not related to married female immigrants` preparations for their old age. On the other hand, the results indicate that their life style and marriage satisfaction influences their perception of preparing their old age in a positive way. Finally, sociodemographic factors such as gender, age, education, marriage status, occupation and income are shown to affect the women`s perception of preparing their old age positively.

When adolescents undergo the period of transition, they need to promote self-confidence from social support by parents, teachers or friends.
