Abstract

This article examines the reliability of the Occupational Stress Indicator (OSI) in its Chinese version as well as factor structures for three of its scales–stressors, coping and job satisfaction. Estimates of reliability obtained by item-total correlation coefficients and Cronbach's alphas are quite acceptable. Factor analyses using the principal components technique have also found psychologically meaningful structures.
