Abstract [en]

The aim was to examine how different aspects of time pressure are associatedwith health and gender. The study is based on data collected by cross-sectionalquestionnaire from 153 female and 167 male journalists at three editorial officesin Sweden. Spearman correlation coefficients by gender were analysed betweensix different time pressure variables and seven health measures. For womenthree health indicators correlated significantly with time pressure expressed as''short of time for reflection''. For men, health as expressed by four indicatorswas primarily related to ''lack of efficiency''. Severe time pressure correlatedespecially highly with stress but only to an almost negligible degree with neckand shoulder symptoms. Our analysis showed that the relation between timepressure and health differs between women and men and that time pressure canbe interpreted in several different ways.
