In this study, we explored what workers think about when they are asked to indicate the degree to which they find their job stressful. This is important because single-item measures of job stressfulness are proving increasingly popular among researchers and occupational health practitioners, yet little is known about precisely what such measures assess. Cognitive interviews with 55 workers revealed that the primary frame of reference was negative psychosocial working conditions, primarily high job demands. Health characteristics, predominantly poor psychological wellbeing, emerged as a secondary theme. These findings shed light on the frames of reference used to inform judgements on global job stressfulness elicited based on single-item measures and in this way contribute to the evidence base to support the application of such measures.
