A Factor-Analytic Examination of the Internal Structure of a Maslow-Type Need Satisfaction Instrument.
Weber, R. Jack; Hadd, Thomas A.
The Porter Need Satisfaction Questionnaire (PNSQ) is a 13-item questionnaire designed to measure a respondent's need satisfaction in five areas: Security, Social, Esteem, Autonomy, and Self-Actualization. In this study, the internal structure of the PNSQ is reexamined using a large multiorganizational sample of 2,049 middle and upper level managers from 29 independent organizations and agencies of state government, the original 13-item questionnaire, and more explicit factor-analytic procedures. The PNSQ items were presented as a part of a larger manpower survey and were completed anonymously. Description of all items are included as well as a discussion of the implications of the findings for past and future research on job satisfaction. (Author/DEP)
