The purpose of this study was to describe relationships
between Finnish comprehensive vocational institute teachers'
sex-role attitudes and selected personal and professional
variables, and to analyze to what extent these variables
separately and in combination explained the variance of
sex-role attitudes. The independent variables consisted of
individual characteristics (sex, age, marital status, sex of
children, and household income) ,and professional
characteristics (occupational area, job roles, years of
teaching experience, and educational attainments). The
dependent variable was a 36-item sex-role attitude scale.
