Keeping in mind the growing importance of women professional, this study aims to investigate the nature of association, if any between workplace anxiety, stress coping behaviour and personality attributes of working women. Data had been collected from women involved in six categories of services in the state of West Bengal in India. The sectors were Finance, Health, Information Technology, Media, Retail and Education. After several round of pilot survey the final structured questionnaires were administered on 480 respondents i.e. 80 women taken from each of the six service sectors. Stratified sampling technique was adopted during data collection where each sector being treated as a stratum and within each stratum quota sampling was applied. Various psychometric instruments were used for preparing the structured questionnaire. Final data analysis and interpretation was done with the help of SPSS package. Results of the investigation revealed that though majority of the women are suffering from moderate level of job anxiety but there were marked differences in the perception of anxiety level and coping behaviour among the respondents in different sectors. Further association of personality attributes of the respondents with level of perception of occupational anxiety and their coping strategies were established by Pearson Chi square test.
