Abstract:

Job satisfaction measures developed in recent years have taken one of two basic approaches the measure of overall satisfaction, and the measure of satisfaction with various aspects of the job. This study shows the relationships between two such devices, the Hoppock measure of satisfaction and Smith, Hulin, and Kendalls Job Descriptive Index JDI. Correlation analysis, linear regression analysis, and principal component factor analysis techniques were used to determine the statistical relationships. Data for the analysis was from Air Force members of the 341st Strategic Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana. Analysis of the data revealed that Hoppicks measure encompasses several of the aspects studied by the JDI with the exception of satisfaction with pay levels.
