Abstract : This thesis investigated the relationship between job satisfaction and gender by examining factors considered to be determinants of job satisfaction among junior U.S. Air Force officers. The data used in this research were from the 1985 DoD Survey of Officers and Enlisted Personnel. Bivariate analysis, factor analysis and regression analysis were performed to determine the effect of gender on those factors considered to be determinants of job satisfaction. No difference in level of job satisfaction was found between male and female officers, but differences were found in the variables that explained job satisfaction for male and female officers. An understanding of job satisfaction and the relationship of gender to the factors that determine officers' job satisfaction may give military policymakers and leaders greater opportunities to affect job satisfaction and thereby affect job performance and career intention.
