A Causal Analysis of Relationships Between Performance and Satisfaction in Eight Airman Specialties.
Hickerson, Karl A.; And Others
Longitudinal relationships, between two measures of both job performance and job satisfaction over a three-year period, were investigated for 1,352 airmen in eight enlisted Air Force occupational specialties. Cross-lagged panel correlation analyses were compared to conclusions based on an extended multiple linear regression analysis technique. Data are presented which suggest causal influence between performance and satisfaction in two of the eight specialties. Other results indicated that the performance-satisfaction relationship is a complex one dependent on the models used for investigation; the satisfaction, performance, and moderating variables selected, and the particular job specialty under consideration. The report includes a presentation of the linear regression models employed in the analysis and a bibliography of performance-satisfaction research. (Author)
