Abstract : A job inventory covering six specialties in the veterinary and laboratory animal career ladders, and consisting of 256 tasks grouped under 11 duty categories, was administered to 327 airmen in 14 major air commands. Incumbents of all skill levels completed a background information sheet and rated on a 7-point scale the relative time spent on tasks. The airmen also indicated on a 7-point scale the length of time they had spent on the job before first performing each task. Job descriptions are presented for 22 groups selected according to background information variables, including 6 specialty groups and 10 groups with differing lengths of military experience. Duty and task descriptions of the 13 significant job types identified by the automated job clustering program and the composite job description of the total sample are also given. A group overlap matrix shows the similarity of groups in terms of time spent on tasks. Summary tables indicate the percentage of members in each group who perform each task and the average percent time spent on each task by group members. Group difference descriptions are given for certain specialty groups. Distributions of background variables for the total sample and for specialty groups and job types are also presented. An analysis of work experience shows the average time spent on the job by group members before performing tasks. Tables list the entire sample surveyed in terms of background information, present work assignment, and organization and base. The inventory of duties and tasks used in the survey is included.
