Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to determine the effect of race on job satisfaction, and the effect of race on those factors considered to be determinants of job satisfaction. The data used for the research was obtained from a survey of military personnel conducted by the Rand corporation in early 1979. The data was used to test bivariate and multivariate models with job satisfaction as independent variables. The types of statistical methods employed to detect the effect of race in the various models were, ANOVA, GIM, Factor Analysis, and Regression Analysis. The results of the analysis indicated that race was a significant factor in the determination of job satisfaction, but that the effect of race in models of job satisfaction was very small. Keywords Job satisfaction, Job characteristics, Bivariates analysis, Multivariate analysis, Factor analysis determinants, Race effects.
