The aim of this study is two-fold w ithin the broader context of organizational trust. Firstly, to build an organizational trust model for socio-political institutions in Jamaica (using confidence in 22-sociopolitical institutions in the society) as well as to examine the top five and the lower five institutions in regard to people’s confidence in them. Secondly, from the model ascertain what is the explanatory power of the final model, and from the identify model examine the explanation of each of the significant factors as well as ascertain whether the model is a predictive one. The findings of this study were obtained from a nationally representative descriptive cross-sectional observational survey data of some 1,338 Jamaicans, with a sampling error of ± 3%: 95% confidence level. The observational data was stored and retrieved using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences version 17.0. Logistic regression was used to establish the predictive model for organizational trust, with factor analysis used to establish the variable referred to as trust in organization. Cronbach alpha was used to test the validity of the following variables-political participation and subjective psychosocial wellbeing. While we do not claim to provide all the answers with this single static study, it will be used assist future research in the area, as nothing exists on the topic at the moment.
