The purpose of the study was to identify, categorize, and provide a model for the understanding of social support among Korean working mothers. The participants were interviewed and asked what kind of social support they received that allowed them to maintain work and family life. Using multidimensional scaling and hierarchical clustering analysis to generate a concept map, 5 thematic clusters were identified: Husband, Workplace, Family, Child, and Government. Items in the Husband, Workplace, and Family clusters were rated by participants as the most important types of support. Child and Government items were rated considerably lower.
