Methods : A researcher analyzed the time use of mothers with young children (n=2369). The data were collectedfrom a ‘2009 Time Use Survey’. The mean data of each area were used to analyze the occupational balance ofthe mothers. Results : The areas of occupational balance based on time ranged from 370 to 550 minutes of sleep, 100 to 230minutes of daily life activities, 40 to 300 minutes of child care, 210 to 560 minutes of work, and 100 to 360minutes of leisure time.
