The introductory chapter discusses the background of the project and the major criteria used in evaluating the 77 scales. Chapters 2-4 deal with reviews of research on job satisfaction: Historical perspective, cross-sectional studies, and predictability. Other chapters deal with the scales themselves: General Job Satisfaction Scales; Job Satisfaction for Particular Occupations; Satisfaction with Specific Job Features; Factors from some Multidimensional Analyses of Job Satisfaction; Concepts Related to Job Satisfaction; Occupational Values; Leadership Styles; Other Work-Relevant Attitudes; Vocational Interest Measures; Occupational Status Measures; Status Inconsistency: Some Conceptual and Methodological Considerations; Occupational Status; and Social Mobility. Chapter 18 summarizes the evidence of the previous four under the general heading of occupational similarity. Appendix b is ed 053 031; Measures of Political Attitudes is ed 053 032. (Author/DJB)

National trends in drug use and related factors among American high school students and young adults, 1975-1986 by Lloyd D Johnston( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the 10th in an annual series reporting the drug use and related attitudes of American high school seniors. Findings reported cover the high school classes of 1975 through 1986 and come from the national project, Monitoring the Future: a Continuing Study of the Lifestyles and Values of Youth. Findings on the prevalence of, and trends in, drug use and related factors are reported separately for high school seniors and for two subsamples of young adults who had participated in the study as high school seniors: young adults post-high school and college students. Trend data are presented for varying time intervals. For high school seniors, drug use by grade level, degree and duration of drug highs, attitudes and beliefs about drugs, and the social milieu are also examined. A section entitled "Other Findings From the Study" explores the use of nonprescription stimulants, daily use of marijuana, medically supervised use of psychotherapeutic drugs, correlates of cigarette smoking, and other data on correlates and trends. Eleven separate classes of drugs are discussed: (1) marijuana (including hashish); (2) inhalants; (3) hallucinogens; (4) cocaine (including crack); (5) heroin; (6) other natural and synthetic opiates; (7) stimulants; (8) sedatives; (9) tranquilizers; (10) alcohol; and (11) cigarettes. Separate statistics are presented for several subclasses of drugs. Estimates adjusted for absentees and dropouts are appended. Forty data tables and 65 figures are included. (Nb)
Drug use among American high school students, college students, and other young adults : national trends through 1985 by Lloyd Johnston( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drug use and related attitudes of U.S. high school seniors from the graduating classes of 1975-1985 and young adults in their late teens and early- to mid-twenties were studied, as part of an ongoing research project. Eleven classes of drugs were assessed: marijuana (including hashish), inhalants, hallucinogens, cocaine, heroin, other natural and synthetic opiates, stimulants (amphetamines), sedatives, tranquilizers, alcohol, and cigarettes. Several subclasses of drugs were also covered: pcp and lysergic acid diethylamide (lsd), amyl and butyl nitrites, and barbiturates and methaqualone. Attention was focused on drug use at the higher frequency levels rather than whether respondents had ever used various drugs. Of concern were: age of first use; the seniors' own attitudes and beliefs; and the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors of others in the seniors' social environment, including perceived drug availability. The use of non-prescription stimulants, including diet pills, stay-awake pills, and pseudo-amphetamines were also reported, along with cocaine use among young people. Findings include sex differences in drug use, differences related to college plans, regional differences, and differences related to population density. The implications of findings for prevention efforts were addressed. (Sw)
Measures of social psychological attitudes by John P Robinson( Book )

22 editions published between 1969 and 1980 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a systematic review and evaluation of the major empirical measures of social psychological attitudes. It is hoped that the form of presentation adopted in this work (which includes actual scale items and scoring instructions) will help the reader to make his or her own judgments about the current state of the art in social attitude research. This information is presented for each measure: the variable measured, a description of the measure, the sample, data on reliability and validity, where the measure may be located in the literature, results and comments, and references. The chapters are broken down as follows: (1) introduction, (2) measures of life satisfaction and happiness, (3) measures of self-esteem and related constructs, (4) measures of internal-external locus of control, (5) measures of alienation and anomia, (6) measures of authoritarianism, dogmatism, and related constructs, (7) other socio-political attitude measures, (8) measures of values, (9) measures of general attitudes toward people, (10) measures of religious attitudes, and (11) methodological scales primarily for the measurement of social desirability response set.

5 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the 11th in an annual series reporting the drug use and related attitudes of America's high school seniors and young adults. The findings, which cover the high school classes of 1975 through 1987, come from an ongoing national research and reporting program entitled "Monitoring the Future: a Continuing Study of the Lifestyles and Values of Youth," conducted by the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research. The opening three chapters review the design and content of the "Monitoring the Future" study, provide an overview of key findings, and describe the study design and procedures. Chapters 4 through 9 focus on high school seniors, providing data on prevalence and trends in drug use, use at earlier levels, degree and duration of drug highs, attitudes and beliefs about drugs, and the social milieu for seniors. Chapters 10 through 13 cover the prevalence, trends, attitudes, and social milieu of post-high school young adults, while chapters 14 and 15 focus on prevalence and trends in drug use among college students. Chapter 16 provides other findings from the study, including the use of nonprescription stimulants, daily marijuana use, and data correlating drug use with other factors. Estimates adjusted for absentees and dropouts are appended. (Te)
