A meta-analysis of the relationship between job satisfaction and employee health in Hong Kong



A meta-analysis of the relationship between job satisfaction and employee health in Hong Kong



Stress & Health 19(2): 79-95



A meta-analysis was conducted of correlations between job satisfaction and measures of health for samples originating from Hong Kong. Using established procedures and a priori selection criteria, 22 samples were combined from published and unpublished sources, in a combined sample of 4492 workers from various industries and occupations. Results indicated relationships between job satisfaction and health for Hong Kong employees were high, and notably different from the larger sample in the HERMES study (Cass, Faragher, & Cooper, 2003). The moderator analysis revealed that samples comprising an approximately equal gender mix had larger correlations than samples of mostly women, or mostly men. Our comparison of studies with differential methodological rigour indicated that this had a minimal impact on combined effect size.
