|Abstract||The study seeks to determine whether a correlation exists between job and marital adjustment. The primary emphasis is upon coexistence, if any, between adjustment in marriage and in industrial or occupational behavior. Specifically, the study is concerned with an analysis of occupationally adjusted and maladjusted persons in terms of job adjustment and marital adjustment items in order to decide whether the relative degree of occupational adjustment coexists with a similar relative degree of marital adjustment. Another aspect of the problem is to determine what changes occur in the findings due to an increase in sample size of more than one hundred per cent.; The investigators working on this project found no previous studies on the relationship between job and marital adjustment. Studies have been made of job and marital adjustment as more or less distinct areas of human behavior but in no case was an effort made to see whether a correlation exists between them.; As a pilot study this project should provide fruitful hypotheses for further research. It will indicate whether any relationship exists between the marital and occupational areas of human behavior when a relatively large number of persons having the same job classification are studied. It may indicate the feasibility of predicting adjustment in one area of human behavior from a measure of adjustment in another area.; The present study has three distinct advantages over many others which were concerned with occupational behavior: (1) it was not financed by a business organization; (2) the subjects were not aware that they were sought because of their place of employment; and (3) the subjects were not contacted or interviewed during their working hours.; The study includes persons who are married, or have been married, and who have civil service ratings classifying them among the "best" and "least" adjusted attendants at a large public hospital in Southern California. In addition, the study is concerned with the husbands and wives of these attendants for in each interviewing situation both husband and wife were sought as subjects.; The study is limited to the determination of the correlation between the relative degree of the adjustment of persons in their jobs and in their marriages. It is not primarily concerned with the precedence of adjustment in one area of human behavior over adjustment in another area, nor whether one is the cause of the other, or whether both have a common origin.|
