Black-White Differentials in Occupational Mobility Among Men in the United States, 1962-1970. Working Paper 72-32.
Hauser, Robert Mason; Featherman, David L.
In this paper, trends in the occupational mobility of black and white men are compared. Emphasis was placed upon the effects of occupational origins on the changing occupation distributions of blacks and whites and with the possibility of convergence between the occupational mobility of blacks and whites. It was found that there has been some degree of convergence from 1962 to 1970 in the occupational distribution, due mainly to racial differences in changing effects of first occupation on current occupations.
