2. On the relation between psychosocial work environment and musculoskeletal symptoms : a structural equation modeling approach
Sammanfattning : The aim of the present thesis was to investigate the relation between aspects of the psychosocial work environment and musculoskeletal symptoms including the testing of process models of the potential mediating mechanisms of felt stress and perceived fatigue, and the potential moderating mechanism of physical workload. This thesis is based on four empirical studies. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis which consists of four papers is concerned with estimation methods in factor analysis and structural equation models. New estimation methods are proposed and investigated.In paper I an approximation of the penalized maximum likelihood (ML) is introduced to fit an exploratory factor analysis model. LÄS MER
4. Composite Likelihood Estimation for Latent Variable Models with Ordinal and Continuous, or Ranking Variables
Sammanfattning : The estimation of latent variable models with ordinal and continuous, or ranking variables is the research focus of this thesis. The existing estimation methods are discussed and a composite likelihood approach is developed. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The general aim of this thesis was to empirically explore the organisational characteristics of quality systems of hospital departments, to develop and empirically test models for the organisation and implementation of quality systems, and to discuss the clinical implications of the findings. Data were collected from hospital departments through interviews (n=19) and a nation-wide survey (n=386). LÄS MER
