Abstract

This work is part of the Swedish project 'Managers and Stress'. In the report the Swedish version of the Demand-Decision Latitude model was used, which made it possible to compare data with an earlier population study. A total of 179 male and 56 female managers were included. The demands and decision latitude scores were significantly higher than in the population study. Social support buffers high demands but surprisingly the managers did nor report higher support than the participants in the population. Psychologicaldemands and skill discretion differed significantly between companies. Thehypotheses that psychological demands and decision latitude differ betweenfemale and male managers had to be rejected. The period of extensive changes which has taken place in working-life, especially in the government sector, probably influenced the results. The results did not indicate higher stress in those managers working in the companies that were the most extensive 'downsizers'. Copyright (C) 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
