Inequality in Job Satisfaction.
Farrell, Dan
The relationship between occupational groups and level of overall job satisfaction is examined for a 1972-1973 U.S. sample of males and females. Analysis employing ANCOVA and dummy variables found some support for the relationship between the variables. Significant between-group differences were found for males but not for females. Introduction of earnings, education, and job tenure as covariants did not eliminate the relationship between occupational groups and overall job satisfaction. Tests for interactions revealed that high income can greatly increase job satisfaction, especially in the case of occupations which are not high in prestige. Finally, a decomposition of the between group variance revealed that the occupational groups were more important in terms of explanatory power than either the covariates or the joint effects.
