Occupational choice and mobility in the urbanizing piedmont of North Carolina by Richard L Simpson( Book )

5 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of occupational choice and occupational career patterns in two north carolina communities. The objectives were (1) to explore orientations of individuals toward various groups which influence them, and (2) to determine the value orientations of these individuals. Samples of 400 adult white male workers were drawn from each block and subjects interviewed with an instrument designed to elicit information on reference group, value orientations. This information was related to the work histories (career mobility) of the older adults and the occupational choice processes (intergenerational mobility) of the younger adults. In addition, the same measures were used with all white male high school students in the communities and the data related to the aspirations (anticipated intergenerational and career mobility) of the respondents. Correlation coefficients showed association between variables, such as upward mobility and degree of instrumentalism in value orientation. There was the tendency toward inheritance of general occupation level, with high-status fathers tending to have high-status sons and low-status fathers tending to have low-status sons. As in the findings of other recent studies, there was a substantial amount of upward intergenerational mobility and a lesser amount of upward intergenerational mobility. One implication of the similarity of findings to other studies is that the life-chances of a worker who starts from a given place in the social structure are about the same in north carolina as in other parts of the united states.
