Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka om det hos ett urval av lärare och undersköterskor fanns åldersskillnader i upplevd stress. Även skillnader i arbetstillfredsställelse, arbetsbörda, kontroll, socialt stöd, vigör och arbetsosäkerhet undersöktes. Syftet var också att kontrollera hur stor del av deltagarnas rapporterade stress som kunde prediceras av ålder och av ovan nämnda arbetsrelaterade faktorer. En elektronisk enkät besvarades av 68 lärare och 88 undersköterskor anställda i två kommuner i Halland. Upplevd stress mättes med en svensk version av Perceived Stress Scale. Sambandet mellan ålder och upplevd stress var inte signifikant. Inga åldersskillnader vad gäller upplevd stress kunde påvisas hos någon av yrkesgrupperna. Däremot fanns en signifikant skillnad mellan lärare och undersköterskor på arbetsbörda (p < .001), där lärarna som grupp hade ett högre medeltal på rapporterad arbetsbörda än vad undersköterskorna hade. Ålder kunde inte predicera upplevd stress medan högre rapporterad arbetsbörda (p < .001) och arbetsosäkerhet (p = .008) gav högre upplevd stress och högre arbetstillfredsställelse (p = .017) gav lägre upplevd stress. Slutsatsen är att vissa arbetsrelaterade faktorer kan ha en större betydelse för anställdas upplevda stress än vad ålder har.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine if there were age differences in perceived stress in a sample of teachers and nursing assistants. Differences in job satisfaction, work load, control, social support, vigor, and job insecurity were also investigated. Finally, the aim was to see how age and these work-related variables were able to explain differences in perceived stress. A web-based questionnaire was answered by 68 teachers and 88 nursing assistants, working in two municipalities in Halland, Sweden. They reported their stress-levels through ten items of the Perceived Stress Scale. Age and perceived stress were not significantly related. No differences in perceived stress between the age groups were found. Teachers reported higher work load than nursing assistants (p < .001). Age was not a predictor of perceived stress, but a higher work load (p < .001) and job insecurity (p = .008) predicted higher perceived stress, while higher job satisfaction (p = .017) predicted lower perceived stress. The conclusion is that certain work-related factors have a larger impact than age on workers perceived stress levels.
