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.
