Job and Life Satisfaction

Through literature searches in psychology, sociology, counseling, management, and leisure, we found 34 studies (combined = 19,811) reporting relationships between job and life satisfaction. Contrary to previous reviews (e.g., ), this meta-analysis found sizable overlap between work and nonwork experiences. Furthermore, although this correlation was substantially greater for men than for women in studies published prior to 1974, the difference disappeared in studies published after 1974. Demographic changes among female workers and changes in the relative importance of work to women's lives were suggested as explanations for the larger correlation observed for women in more recent studies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Applied Psychology PsycARTICLES®
