Abstract : The research concerns the measurement of attitudes regarding job satisfaction and the isolation of factors influencing the variation in the levels of satisfaction. It also evaluates the effectiveness of the linear regression method as a means of statistical analysis for the determination of those variables that have an effect on explaining the variation in job satisfaction. The measurement of the job satisfaction parameters consists of measuring employee perceptions of five key factors in their jobs. These factors are achievement, job interest, recognition, advancement, and responsibility. Perceptions of security on the job, the relative importance of the motivators, and ratings of other factors relating to job satisfaction were also measured. (Author)
