There would be 12 hits in the column under TES for the country totals, and 11 hits for males and females. 4). That is, MDT had a narrow prediction success ratio of 100% for the world sample explanation of job satisfaction, taking males and females together. 4). Clearly, these are excellent narrow prediction success ratios. 6 gives the ratio of successful to total predicted direct effects in the 8 regression equations required for an application of MDT. I refer to such figures as "broad prediction success ratios" or simply "broad ratios".

3. 05 or better; N =9092; ns =not significant. 4 gives the results of using MDT to explain job satisfaction in the world balanced sample. In the left side column under S there are listed the numbers of students in the sample (N) for the whole group, and males and females taken separately. Each of the eight columns from that labelled S to that labelled SB gives the results of a stepwise regression of the labelled item on the variables listed below it. A single application of MDT requires 8 regressions.

For example, in the column under S (in this context, for "satisfaction with one's paid employment" or "job satisfaction ") we find a total sample N of 3,710 students, including 1,970 males and 1,740 females. MDT explained 65% of the variance in reported job satisfaction scores for the whole group, 64% for males and 66% for females. 4 (continued) S Age 4 WS 5 0 LEO -5 ETH SO 33 SO 6 SN 9 SP 10 SF 4 SB 4 SW 30 Females 1740 N R2 66 Age 0 WS 7 LEO 0 ETH 0 SO 25 SO 9 SN 9 SP 9 SF 5 SB 8 35 SW SW SO SO SN SP SF 7 5 0 3 32 15 20 7 -6 8 17 15 0 -4 16 0 -5 -9 17 5 -6 -9 15 9 0 -7 -10 SB TES TESW 13 5 13 0 11 0 -10 1880 2381 2342 2397 2435 2912 2423 7 4 5 5 1 6 56 21 21 21 19 -11 18 6 6 9 5 14 0 4 8 -8 -11 -10 -9 9 -5 0 -7 -7 -7 -8 0 -11 3 25 13 25 11 -5 8 20 16 -1 -9 43 11 15 12 2 6 30 21 12 -3 -3 32 15 20 7 -6 8 20 17 -8 -6 34 14 18 13 3 11 35 23 11 -8 -3 25 13 25 11 -5 8 As explained in Volume One, we are interested in the percent of variance explained in satisfaction scores by all the predictors collectively and the relative impacts of the various predictors individually.
