Measuring worker wellbeing is the first step towards improving workplace policies, programs, and practices to promote prevention of disease and injury The TWH Program’s interest in the concept of worker well-being is consistent with other efforts across the nation. Well-being is now a common feature across the public health literature, as it reflects the expanded goals to create the conditions for health and foster a culture of health rather than to simply treat injury and illness (EASHW, 2013; City of Santa Monica, 2016; OECD, 2016). However, while the concept of well-being has been considered by many disciplines throughout history, there has been no consistent definition or consensus around measurement and application. The ambiguity around this very broad concept creates challenges for any program or initiative that aims to advance the well-being of individual workers or workplaces. Through a comprehensive and multidisciplinary literature review, this project developed a conceptual framework of worker wellbeing that provided the basis for development of a worker well-being survey instrument. For this study, data is being collected from a nationwide online panel of employed adults. The survey includes questions on five domains of worker well-being including: Worker evaluation and experiences with work, workplace physical environment and safety climate, organizational policies and culture, worker health status, and experiences outside of work (external context). The instrument will be programmed into a web-based survey that will be administered online to an existing nationwide survey panel (KnowledgePanel®) hosted by our vendor, GfK. The field period for data collection will be about 3 weeks. The provided instrument is intended to offer a comprehensive assessment and measurement of worker well-being across multiple domains; however the instrument itself has not yet been rigorously tested on its psychometric properties. Such work is necessary to ensure that the survey is considered a validated instrument that can be used to collect accurate and reliable data on worker well-being. The total estimated burden hours is 342. There are no costs to the respondent other than their time.

Over a third of women and over a quarter of men have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner (Black, et al., 2011). Recognition of the importance and prevalence of this issue has fueled research to examine the causes, correlates, and outcomes of IPV over the past several decades. The proposed data collection will be used to identify classes of IPV perpetrators based on shared characteristics such as their personal attributes, risk factors, relationship characteristics, and characteristics of the violence they commit. The study will collect information to ascertain which factors or groups of factors may influence violence perpetration that occurs within adult intimate partner relationships.

Proposed Project

    Understanding Relationship Dynamics and Conflict Survey--New--
National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a substantial public health 
problem in the United States. Over a third of women and over a quarter 
of men have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an 
intimate partner (Black, et al., 2011). Recognition of the importance 
and prevalence of this issue has fueled research to examine the causes, 
correlates, and outcomes of IPV over the past several decades.
    The proposed data collection will be used to identify classes of 
IPV perpetrators based on shared characteristics such as their personal 
attributes, risk factors, relationship characteristics, and 
characteristics of the violence they commit. The study will collect 
information to ascertain which factors or groups of factors may 
influence violence perpetration that occurs within adult intimate 
partner relationships.
    Data will be collected through an online screener of up to 8,600 
respondents and survey of 2,000 Mechanical Turk (MT) workers and an

in-person survey of 210 incarcerated individuals. A purposive sample of 
participants will be chosen from each group. Gay and lesbian 
individuals will be oversampled in the MT group. The incarcerated group 
will be equally stratified if individuals are intimate partner violence 
(IPV) offenders or not. Data analysis will include a combination of 
Factor Analysis and Latent Profile Analysis.
    OMB approval is requested for two years for this new collection. 
Findings from this data collection will be used to understand and 
identify classes of intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetrators based 
on shared characteristics such as their personal attributes, risk 
factors, relationship characteristics, and characteristics of the 
violence they commit.
    The estimated annual burden hours are 1,322. There are no costs to 
respondents.
