  • Korean middle-aged women, who are securing economic stability of their own along with the national economic growth, have had much concern in their outward appearance. Especially, middle-aged women's concern of appearance triggered by their various social/leisure activities and appreciation of aesthetic sense leads to the interest in their outward appearance, thus naturally stimulating their purchasing sentiments. This paper attempts to identify the level of middle-aged women's concern of appearance and analyze how this level of concern affects their behavior in purchasing cosmetic products. Our analytical findings include: 1. From the t-test and distributional analysis of points of each factor on the group, the high-interest type 1 (108 persons) and low-interest type 2 (91 person) in terms of 'concern of appearance' turned out to exist. 2. Five factors of cosmetics-purchasing behavior were derived that are fashion-leading type, compulsive buying type, brand-dependent type, pondering type, planned buying type and loyal-to-brand type. 3. Cosmetics-purchasing behavior varied according to the subjects' level of concern of appearance.

  • 이 연구의 목적은 중년여성들의 체형을 분류하고 이들 체형을 분류하는 판별기준을 세우고자 하는 것이다. 이 연구에서 개발한 판별방법은 중년여성들의 체형을 간편하게 판별할 수 있도록 해주므로 이 방법을 활용하여 중년여성복을 제작할 경우, 소비자들은 인체적합도가 높은 의복을 구입 할 수 있고 의류업 체들은 이에 따른 매출증대를 가져올 수 있다. 연구의 진행절차와 이에 따른 결과는 다음과 같다. 1. 만 40세~59세 중년여성 279명에 대 한 인체 계측을 하였다. 인체 계측항목은 34개의 직접 계측항목과 측면사진 촬영을 통한 3개의 간접계측항목,11개의 지수치, 5개의 계산치 등의 총 53개 항목이다. 인체 계측치에 대한 통계분석 방법으로는 분산분석과 SNK검정, 판별분석 방법을 사용하였다. 2. 피험자는 몇 가지 체형으로 분류되었다. 상반신 체형분류는 인체측면 자세와 유방크기를 분류기준으로 하여 바른-유방중소 체형, 바른-유방대 체형, 젖힌-유방중소 체형 , 숙인/휜-유방중소 체형, 숙인/휜-유방대 체형의 5가지로 분류하였다. 하반신 체형분류는 배와 엉덩이의 돌출정도에 따라 분류하여 배정상-엉덩이정상 체형, 배 정상-엉덩이돌출 체형, 배돌출-엉덩이정상 체형 , 배돌출-엉덩이돌출 체형의 4가지로 분류하였다. 3. 분류된 체형은 다음의 판별변수에 따라 체형이 판별되었다. 상반신 체 형 의 판별변수는 앞품/뒤품, 가슴둘레/밑가슴둘레 , 앞길이/뒤 길이, 앞허리선$\longrightarrow$어깨선 길이/어깨선$\longrightarrow$뒤허 리선 길이의 4가지 항목이고, 하반신 판별변수는 엉덩이상부각도, 배 하부각도, 배상부 각도, 엉덩이둘레/엉덩이 최대둘레, 뒤엉덩이둘레의 5가지 항목이다. 상반신 체 형과 하반신 체형 판별함수 모두 70% 이상의 높은 적중률을 나타내었다.

  • This ethnography was done to understand the daily lives and life values of the experience of middle-aged women with Hwabyung. It also focused on how they reorganized their lives to escape their crisis and how they continued living going forward. The participants were 5 middle-aged women with Hwabyung and 2 family members in K city. Data were collected from iterative fieldwork through in-depth interviews and participant observations. Data were analyzed using text analysis and taxonomic method. The reorganization of the everyday lives of participants with Hwabyung started from the perception of family values and the crisis of those values failing.

  • The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships between fatigue, stress resistance and emotion in middle aged women under the developmental crisis using a brain wave measurement which is a cranial physiological index. From March 2005 to June 2009, women aged between 35 and 65 (N=4402) who volunteered for a brain wave test at the KRIJUS( Korea Research Institute of Jungshin Science) were monitored the brain function quotient (tension degree, anti-stress quotient and emotional quotient). Correlation and time-series linear analysis revealed significantly the relationships between fatigue, stress resistance and emotion. Also, according to the emotional propensity, cheerful propensity was higher in the cheerful and depressed propensity, positive propensity was higher in the positive and negative propensity, during the whole test, cheerful and positive propensity was higher. Therefore, it is necessary to increase the quality of life by decreasing fatigue and stress level of the middle-aged women to maintain and increase their individual health and the better family relationship.
