NLSY79 Appendix 4: Job Characteristics Index 1979-1982

Included in the 1979 and 1982 surveys is a measure of perceived job characteristics developed by Sims, Szilagyi, and Keller.1 This scale, the Job Characteristics Index (JCI), is an extension of the work first begun by Turner and Lawrence in 1965.2 The JCI was preceded by an instrument developed by Hackman and Oldham known as the Job Diagnostic Survey (JDS),3 whose dimensions are also incorporated in the JCI, but in a simpler format.

NLSY79 Appendix 3: Job Satisfaction Measures

Included in the 1979 through 1982 NLSY79 is a measure of job satisfaction with econometric properties that make it better than the global job satisfaction measure also included in the surveys. The job satisfaction measure is a seven-item scale that has greater variance than the global satisfaction measure. The scale has been tested previously on broad cross-sections of national data.
