Considering burnout experience among different individuals, investigating and evaluating burnout are continuing concerns within the literature. In recent years, housewives’ burnout has been examined in the literature. The present aim is to examine the psychometric properties of the Housewives Burnout Questionnaire (CUBAC) with Turkish housewives. By collecting two different data set from Turkish housewives, the study is designed in two phases; pilot study (n= 139) to identify factorial structure, and reliability and validation study (n= 509) to examine factorial structure and validity of the CUBAC. First, in addition to satisfactory internal consistency and item-total correlation coefficients, the factorial structure of the scale was two-dimensional based on Velicer’s minimum average partial correlation, Horn’s parallel analysis, and factor analyses. Second, the two-factor model of the CUBAC (boring and tiring home environment and lack of support) was corroborated by confirmatory factor analysis. Also, the CUBAC statistically significant correlation with conceptually related constructs (perceived stress and satisfaction with life) was significant that demonstrated concurrent validity. Validity and reliability findings were discussed in relevant literature.
