THE OCCUPATIONS OF NONCOLLEGE GOING YOUTH.
HEATH, BRIAN C.; LITTLE, J. KENNETH
THE OCCUPATIONAL STATUS OF YOUNG MEN AND CONDITIONS AFFECTING THEIR AMBITIONS AND FULFILLMENT WERE REPORTED. A SAMPLE OF 4,186 MEN WERE LOCATED FOR A FOLLOWUP 7 YEARS AFTER HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION. THE PARENTS WERE ASKED TO REPORT CURRENT OCCUPATION FOR THEIR SONS, EDUCATION FOLLOWING HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION, MARITAL STATUS, AND MILITARY STATUS. THE OCCUPATIONS WERE CONSISTENT WITH THE OCCUPATIONAL ASPIRATIONS EXPRESSED AT THE TIME OF HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION. THOSE WHO ENROLLED FOR SOME TYPE OF EDUCATION BEYOND HIGH SCHOOL BOTH ASPIRED TO AND ATTAINED OCCUPATIONS OF HIGHER PRESTIGE THAN THOSE WHO DID NOT CONTINUE THEIR SCHOOLING. (RS)
