Abstract: In this article, four large samples out of the Dutch (2002 and 2004) and Flemish (2004 and 2007) working population are used to test the robustness of a research model, based on the Job Demands-Resources model. The aim is to find empirical evidence on the context independence and generalizability of the main and interaction effects in the model. Results of model testing are compared both in time and between both regions. All hypothesized main effects proved to be significant in all four datasets: job demands induce and job resources reduce work related stress. No empirical evidence is found on the generalizability of the hypothesized interaction effects. We conclude that these buffering and amplifying interaction effects seem to be context dependent, i.e. dependent on the characteristics of specific work contexts such as sectors, occupations and organizations.
