Abstract


Background/Objectives: The objective of this study is to examine the correlation between a fatigue, subjective sleep quality, and depression among women with baby less than 24 months. The subjects were chosen by convenience sampling. Methods/Statistical Analysis: They responded questionnaires of fatigue, subjective sleep quality, and depression. We analyzed 107 except for the incomplete six. We analyzed data through independent t-test, One-way ANOVA, Pearson’s correlation coefficients, and multiple regression analysis. Findings: The mean score of Fatigue, Subjective sleep quality, and depression of women with baby less than 24 months was 75.71±15.00, 31.56±11.38, and 2.25±.58, respectively. The statistically significant differences in depression were not found in terms of general characteristics. This finding indicates that higher scores on fatigue are related to higher depression (r=.625, p<.001), and higher scores on subjective sleep quality are related to lower depression (r=-.234, p=.015). Fatigue was the influencing factor on depression with beta of -.625, with power of 38.5%, and with statistical significance (t=-12.290, p<.001). Improvements/Applications: For the mothers to restore their mental and physical health, social supporting system and education programs targeting their physical and psychological issues is necessary.
