Abstract: This paper extends previous efforts examining the construct validity of role stress. While some see it as comprised of separate role conflict and role ambiguity factors, others argue that it is a unidimensional construct. The authors use recent advancements in measurement theory to test the two competing theories. The results support the two-factor model rather conclusively. Implications for theory and practice are suggested.
