Distinctive Patterns of Valued Career Attributes.
Peck, Robert F.
The possible existence and stability of different national patterns of career-values in nine locations (Brazil, Mexico, England, Germany, Italy, Yugoslavia, Chicago, Austin, and Japan) was tested by administering an Occupational Values Inventory to 6,400 urban children in seven of the locations in 1965, and to a new sample of 3,600 in 1969. The samples were stratified by age (10 and 14), sex, and socio-economic status (upper-middle and upper-lower). A four-way ANOVA revealed distinctive national profiles which were stable across the two samples except for some changes in three countries. Each country's value profile is briefly described and possible relations to different national patterns of economic growth are discussed. (Author/MS)
