Title: A Comparative Study of Male and Female Long-Term Westerners (LTW) Living in Japan.
Authors: OʼKeefe, Gregory James
Issue Date: Mar-2022
Publisher: 福岡女学院大学国際キャリア学部
Abstract: This paper steps away from other papers in this series which discuss hybrid identities of long-term Western foreign residents (LTW) to report significant data gathered from a questionnaire (n=306) which was originally used to perform a Pearson r correlation (OʼKeefe 2016). Certain items starting with basic statistical information such as nationality, marital status, age, and education level and proceeding to a self-rated language skill score are also included in this report. Life-satisfaction results along with other significant data are also shown here in their original form. The results of items that asked respondents their opinion on certain subjects are displayed here to act as a debate for future work. Items inquire about subjects like dual citizenship, the right to vote in all elections and opinions on the Japanese school system. Respondents were also asked what their plans are for the future. Items such as this seek out the feeling of permanence rather than living a temporary life in Japan. Finally, the main focus of this data is to report on the variance recorded in female/male responses to certain items through simple cross tabulation. Significant has been designated, for the purpose of this study, at greater than an 8% variance. The data indicates that gender roles are affected by the expectations of male and female roles within the Japanese construct. The variances are broken down into two groups: personal and professional environments.
