As the number of the unemployed in Zagreb is in increase with further tendency of growth all over Croatia, the authors wanted to find out what the factor analysis of the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ 12) would reveal, considering that it is used in investigations on unemployed population. The research based on GHQ 12 was carried out in the group of unemployed persons (N=133) and in the group of students (N=121). In the group of the unemployed three factors were obtained and in the group of students four factors were obtained by component analysis (Varimax Rotation). For the group of the unemployed the obtained factors were: R-factor of psychosomatic aspect of health, F2-efficiency factor F3-inferiority factor, and for the group of students there were: F1-factor of absence of self-respect, F2-factor of psychosomatic aspect (of health), F3-factor of self-confidence and F4-factor of self-satisfaction. The congruent factors between these two groups were found by using Tucker's coefficient. Fl was revealed as congruent in the sample of the unemployed and F2 in the sample of students. |
