Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop a structural equation model of the causal relationships between organizational commitment, organizational justice and transformational leadership and organizational health among the local administrative organizations.  The study found that the model was well-fitted to the empirical data. The results of the study indicated that organizational commitment had direct effects on organizational health; organizational justice had direct effects on organizational health and indirect effects on organizational health through organizational commitment. Transformational leadership had direct effects on organizational health and indirect influence on organizational health through organizational justice.  Therefore, for local administrative organizations to have good organizational health, administrators must build justice perception among personnel in the organizations concerning decision-making, relationship, communication, and transformational leadership in terms of ideological influence, inspiration, intellectual stimulation, and individuality. All of these factors can affect organizational health of local administrative organizations.
