FAMILY FACTORS AND SCHOOL DROPOUT--1920-1960.
DUNCAN, BEVERLY
THE INFLUENCE OF SOCIAL BACKGROUND ON EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT WAS STUDIED. LARGE REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLES OF THE POPULATION WERE SELECTED. INFORMATION ON THE VARIABLES WAS OBTAINED FROM SURVEYS CONDUCTED BY THE BUREAU OF CENSUS. THE SURVEYS QUERIED ADULT MALES AND TEEN-AGE BOYS LIVING AT HOME WITH PARENTS. DATA WERE ALSO DRAWN FROM PUBLICATIONS. ANALYSES RELIED ON MULTIPLE-CLASSIFICATION AND REGRESSION TECHNIQUES, AND PATH DIAGRAMS. CONCLUSIONS REACHED WERE--(1) THE FAMILY ENVIRONMENTAL STRUCTURE DETERMINED THE AMOUNT OF SCHOOLING THE CHILD RECEIVED, (2) THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SCHOOLING AND FAMILY WAS TRACEABLE TO PARENTAL ABILITIES AND CIRCUMSTANCES, AND (3) RESIDENCE DID NOT SHOW SIGNIFICANT INFLUENCES. MORE COMPLETE RECORDS FOR LARGER NUMBERS OF INDIVIDUALS WERE RECOMMENDED SO AS TO PROVIDE FOR ADEQUATE SAMPLE FREQUENCIES IN SUBPOPULATIONS. (RS)
