Survey of Working Conditions. Final Report on Univariate and Bivariate Tables.
Michigan Univ., Ann Arbor. Survey Research Center.
A nationwide survey of employed persons was conducted to provide information on labor standards problems, assess the impact of working conditions on workers, develop job satisfaction measures, and establish statistics for similar data collections. The survey revealed that the majority of workers expressed satisfaction with their jobs but they also identified problems in labor standards areas, principally those involving health, safety, and income. But even more than these traditional labor standards areas, workers considered problems of job content and work relationships to be of major importance. Two job satisfaction measures suitable for use in surveys of workers in heterogeneous occupations were developed, Jobsat '70 and Content Free Job Satisfaction. Determination of their validity will depend on future use. There was not necessarily a high correlation between work-related problems and job satisfaction. Results of the survey are presented in detailed statistical tabulations, with narrative data to highlight the problems reported by workers and to describe measures employed in the analysis. (MF)
