Abstract of the Article

The aim of the present study was to translate and validate the subjective job stress scale (SJSS) into Urdu, by providing an Urdu version of the said scale which has been validated upon the indigenous population. For this purpose, ITC (2010) guidelines were followed in translating the scale (forward & backward translations) and the resultant scale after pilot testing was validated by the administration on 597 working adults, including 391 males and 206 females belonging to three cities, Karachi, Multan and Lahore.

Out of the total respondents, 50 were later reached for test-retest reliability. For validation and determination of psychometric properties, different measures of Reliability & Validity Analysis were carried out. The latter was carried out by assessing Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient (.82), Split-half (Gutman) coefficient (.86), and Test-retest reliability (.70). For validity analysis scores on SJSS translation were correlated with scores of Perceived Stress Scale, (r =.86, p<.01), Rosenberg’s Self-Esteem scale (r = -.72, p<.01), and Job Satisfaction Survey (r = -.69, p<.01), which proved adequate convergent validity. Hence the instrument was found to be an adequate measure of Job Stress to be used with local Pakistani workforce.
