ADJUSTMENTS OF RURAL-REARED YOUNG ADULTS IN URBAN AREAS.
BAUDER, WARD W.; BURCHINAL, LEE G.
THIS PAPER STATES THAT IT HAS BEEN FOUND THAT URBAN RESIDENTS WITH RURAL BACKGROUNDS DO NOT ACHIEVE AS HIGH AN ECONOMIC STATUS AS URBAN-REARED RESIDENTS. INDICATIONS ARE THAT THE EDUCATIONAL LEVEL, AGE, AND NUMBER OF YEARS LIVED IN THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT ARE FACTORS AFFECTING THE LEVEL OF ECONOMIC STATUS. IT FURTHER APPEARS THAT THE URBAN MIGRANT IS MOTIVATED ON ONE HAND BY A DESIRE TO IMPROVE HIS ECONOMIC STATUS, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND RESISTS ADJUSTMENT IN HIS VALUES AND BEHAVIOR, THIS RESISTANCE BEING CHARACTERIZED BY A LACK OF COMPLETE PARTICIPATION IN SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT FURTHER RESEARCH IS NEEDED IN ORDER TO BREAK THE CYCLE OF LOW EDUCATIONAL AND OCCUPATIONAL ASPIRATIONS. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR PRESENTATION AT THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PROBLEMS OF RURAL YOUTH IN A CHANGING ENVIRONMENT (SEPTEMBER 1963). (JS)
