dc.description.abstract This study investigated (a) the structural and measurement equivalence of measures of the job demand-control (JDC) model of job strain for men and women (as operationalised by the Sources of Work Stress Inventory), (b) whether a common or separate regression equations should be used for men and women in the JDC model, and (c) the strain and buffer hypotheses associated with the JDC model. These objectives were pursued by means of factor analysis, item response theory analysis, and moderated hierarchical multiple regression analysis. The results show that the use of a common regression equation might give biased results. The results also provided stronger support for the strain hypothesis than for the buffer hypothesis. en
