Abstract
The study examines occupational differences in psychological stress in the job environment and the impact of stress on affective and physiological strains and on illnesses reported by the worker. Twenty-three jobs were selected to represent a wide range and variety of job stresses, and care was taken to include jobs known to have high rates of illness, such as air traffic controllers and train dispatchers. A questionnaire was administered to 2010 men employed in these jobs, and physiological data were collected from 390 of the men.
