This article aims to provide an original, valid and reliable measure of Midlife Career Stress (MLCS). Based on extensive literature review a conceptual framework of MLCS was developed. Using three different samples (N=781) systematic scale development process was employed containing item-generation, content adequacy, content analysis, exploratory factor analysis, confi rmatory factor analysis, reliability and validity assessment. The analysis provided a validated multi-dimensional structure of MLCS scale with As piration-Achi evement Gap (AAG), Generativity (Gen) and Impediments to change (Imp) as the three factors. HR managers, OD professionals, psychologists and researchers may find the MLCS scale a useful tool for measuring stress among midlife managers.
