FARINA, Larissa Sanford Ayres et al. Development and Validity Evidences of the Job Demands and Resources Questionnaire. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.1, pp. 1-9. ISSN 1677-0471.

Although the Job Demands-Resources (JD-R) model has generated many relevant theoretical studies, no instrument has been proposed to measures the various hypothesized demands and resources. Based on the JD-R model, this study aimed to construct and validate the Job Demands-Resources Questionnaire (JD-RQ). The items were developed based on a literature review and underwent several reformulations. The final version of the instrument contained 44 items. The JD-RQ was answered by 317 participants between 20 and 65 years of age. Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) with oblimin rotation was conducted, extracting 8 factors. The coefficient alpha values for the all the factors, except for 2, were .80 or above. There were no significant differences between men and women. It is suggested that more studies using the JD-RQ are carried out, collaborating for more robust validity and contributing to the quality of life at work.
