Abstract:

A large-scale research program, supported by the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery and the Office of Naval Research, has been initiated to investigate the relative importance of individual characteristics, environmental factors, and organizational stresses in illness incidence, job satisfaction, and organizational effectiveness in naval and civilian settings. A social systems model has been developed to order the large number of variables involved, and multivariate analysis techniques will be used to evaluate individual and situational variables and their interactions. Preliminary analysis of pilot study data has provided perceived habitability dimensions and organizational climate dimensions which differentiate among three types of ships. The major study now in progress provides a comprehensive set of descriptors of naval organizations and related these variables to health, job satisfaction, and individual and group effectiveness.
