Geschwind, R. D.; Ruttan, V. W.
The model developed by Olson and reported in "Job Mobility and Migration in a High Income Rural Community" (RC 003 821) was utilized in this study of the mobility and migration in the low income, rural Shoals, Indiana, community. The data collected in this study were compared to that of the previous study and the conclusions support the usefulness of the model as a hypotheses generating instrument and the results of the previous study. Emphasized were the importance of education for successful mobility, the farmers loss of social status with a job shift, and that mobility and migration were the result of economic and social status factors.
