Abstract
Associations between depression and proxy measures for workplace psychosocial factors and work organization were examined. Job characteristics from the Occupational Information Network (O"NET) were linked to the U.S. National Health Interview Survey. Scales were developed through factor analyses and linkage was done using occupational titles. Logistic regression showed that several O.NET variables (e.g. guiding work of others, gaining knowledge, and positive management relations) were protective for depression after adjustment for gender, race, ethnicity, education, and age. Additional analysis using this linkage technique is warranted, and may suggest other important job characteristics associated with worker well-being.
