Sociocultural Origins and Migration Patterns of Young Men from Eastern Kentucky.
Schwarzweller, Harry K.
The project was designed to follow up a specific population of young men from 11 rural counties in eastern Kentucky, who at the time of the study in 1960 had been out of the eighth grade for 10 years. The sample consisted of 307 men taken from eighth grade enrollment lists for the school year 1949-50. The purpose of the study was to investigate differences in sociocultural origins and migration patterns between individuals residing within the eastern Kentucky area and those who had migrated and taken up residence outside that area. The conclusions of the study indicated that most of te men came from very large, rural families with little formal education on the part of the parents, nearly half of the men completed high school, most of the men had all of their formal schooling in eastern Kentucky, and most of the men who left the area did so in the initial stages of the ten-year period.
