A Canonical Approach to Assessing Occupational Mobility Matrices.
Beck, E. M.
A canonical technique is explored that permits assessment to which origin positions determine destination positions within occupational structures. This procedure requires expressing the occupational positions as binary variables, then obtaining canonical correlations among the sets of binary variables. The association between origin and destination positions is taken as the mean square of these canonical correlations. An application of the technique to intra-generational mobility during regional economic development is provided. (Author)
