Occupational Status Orientations of Negro Youth: Annotated Abstracts of the Research Literature. Departmental Technical Report 67-2.
Kuvlesky, William P.; Lever, Michael F.
Research dealing with the occupational status orientations of Negro youth is described and evaluated. Occupational status orientations are defined as projections by individuals of potential or probable future positions within the structure of occupational statuses. Of the 24 studies abstracted, six are concerned solely with Negro youth, four utilize populations including Negro and white youth but do not treat Negro youth separately, and 14 make Negro-white comparisons. The studies date from 1944 to 1966, and the abstracts include location and date of the study, a description of the respondents, objectives, results, and a critical commentary on the research study. A detailed content index and a bibliography of 33 additional relevant publications are included. (ET)
