International Social Survey Programme

Work Orientations

The ISSP Work Orientations module series comprises four surveys conducted in 1989, 1997, 2005 and 2015. Successive surveys are always partial replications of earlier surveys.

ISSP Work Orientations modules mainly deal with issues, such as employment arrangements, job characteristics, subjective experience of job, outcome of work, work-life balance, work centrality, and solidarity and conflict in work relations.
