This study examined the correlation between Levenson's Locus of Control (LLOC) scale and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) in individuals experiencing job loss . The seventeen subjects studied were employees that chose not to relocate with the company, but rather stayed with the company until it had successfully relocated, and then began searching for their next employment opportunity. At the end of their contracted stay, the subjects completed a demographic questionnaire, the Levenson Locus of Control scale and the Beck Depression Inventory. The results for the most part confirmed previous research with regard to the positive relationship between LLOC Internality and BDI, as well as a negative relationship between the LLOC sub-scales Powerful Others and Chance in relation to BDI .
