Summary

Scientific investigation begins with the null hypothesis which states that there is no relationship between sets of phenomena or sets of variables. This hypothesis is based on the philosophical and physical principle that there is a tendency toward disorder in the universe. This is also commonly referred to as the law of entropy. In order to impose system and order upon the chaotic sequences of events in the managerial universe, methods of analysis must be discovered which accept the null hypothesis but also recognize the concomitant existence of the alternate hypothesis which states that there is a relationship between sets of phenomena. In the spring of 1972, job satisfaction in a large modern library was surveyed. The purpose of the study was to discover whether regular patterns of dispersion did exist in the library. The validity of the null hypothesis was assumed but the alternate hypothesis was not excluded. It was found that certain relationships did exist and statistical implications of the data appeared to nullify the broad premises of the null hypothesis. (Related studies are: LI003816, 003817 and LI003819 through 003821). (Author/NH)
