Identification of Tasks in Home Economics Related Occupations: Institutional and Household Maintenance.
Beavers, Irene; And Others
The study of task identification in institutional and household maintenance presents statistical correlations of task frequencies obtained by questionnaire in 10 task clusters for the occupations of executive housekeeper, supervising housekeeper, housekeeping director, custodian, homemaker/home health aide, hotel/motel housekeeping aide, nursing home housekeeping aide, hospital housekeeping aide, and residential maid. One-way matrices present, for each occupation, task clusters and tasks within each cluster arranged vertically in descending order of overall mean frequency of performance. Two-way matrices correlate task information for all nine occupations, with occupations arranged horizontally and task clusters and individual tasks within each cluster arranged vertically in descending order of commonality of performance as indicated by overall mean frequency scores. A two-page bibliography is included together with five appendixes, which provide a list of resource personnel, a task checklist and instruction sheet, personal descriptive data of employees in the nine occupations, mean frequency tables for task clusters by individual occupations, and alternate job titles by occupations.
