Abstract
A collection of four papers on job demands and worker health. The first paper is an introduction which gives a theoretical model of the effects of the social environment on psychological strain and health, data on occupational groups and their sample sizes, and reliabilities of selected measures of subjective environmental strain and stress. The central hypothesis states that job stress, particularly subjective person environment fit, is a major cause of psychological, physiological, and behavioral strains. The second paper which deals with occupational differences in job demands and strain gives a general model of the relationships between occupation, job strain, stress, and health/illness. The third paper deals with job stress as person-environment misfit, and the fourth deals with effects of social support on occupational strains and stresses. Evidence is presented to show that social support reduces psychological strain but not physiological strain.
