The OECD has done some research on this topic. Data suggests that a good work/life balance is difficult to find, often impacting personal health and stress. The study also suggests that families are particularly affected. 

More details can be found on their site http://www.oecdbetterlifeindex.org/topics/work-life-balance/

Studies have also suggested that a lack of work/life balance leads to reduced innovation and quality decision making.

One of the more interesting data on work/life balance can be found at Nathan Yau's infographics at Workflow. Using the US Census Bureau American Community Survey dataset, it tells you roughly how many Americans share your work-life-salary-commute balance.




For example, Yau's tools show there are precious 28,492 Americans with bachelor's degree, earn annual salary of $100,000 or more, commute for less than an hour, and get to work less than 40 hours a week.

Now, move the "Weekly Hours" slider to "40 t0 49" hours, the survey indicates one is in much bigger cohorts of 546,156 Americans.

The site also has other slicing and dicing view that let's you see cohorts in table view, say, comparing education vs. income or income vs. work hours.
