Abstract The Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) was used to evaluate the burnout state of workers in the human services professions (doctors, nurses, hospital aides, teachers and clerks). The available data were also subjected to factor analysis, reliability analysis, and multiple regression analysis using Zung's Self-rating Depression Scale (SDS). The factor loading pattern was similar to that of Maslach's but 2 different factors emerged in addition to the standard factors in the intensity subscale. Burnout is closely related to Depression but also has its own factors. This suggests that burnout is not a subtype of the depressive state.
