It involved over 200 organizations and over 5000 workers, about a third of whom were on various kinds of temporary contract. All kinds of temporary worker are included with a majority employed on fixed‐term contracts which is representative of typical national practice. Data were collected from employer representatives and from workers in each organization using extensively‐piloted questionnaires. The process of data collection and the broad content of the questionnaires are described. The statistical properties of the various scales used in the study are presented in a Technical Appendix.
