Aspirations and Expectations of the Rural Poor--A Guide to Research.
Slocum, Walter L.
Two research areas relating to the rural poor--educational and occupational aspirations and expectations of youth, and aspirations and expectations of adults for economic progress--are reviewed. Hypotheses are developed, and suggested research topics (e.g., attitudinal norms of the family, work history of the family head, and perceived reality and self-appraisal) are listed. Research methodologies are presented, along with several scales intended for studies of adolescents and adults. A 68-item bibliography is included. (BD)
