Occupational Projections of East Texas Youth: Changes Between 1966 and 1972.
Lever, Michael F.
The analysis determined the extent to which 1972 occupational projections have changed from 1966 for high school sophomores, investigating patterns as they related to race, sex, and residence. The samples consisted of all sophomores in the high schools of 3 nonmetropolitan low income countries in East Texas (Burleson, Leon, and San Jacinto). Chi square tests of difference estimated statistically significant changes. The 20 tables give percentage results, both by race and sex, and by race and residence, for changes in occupational aspirations and aspiration levels, occupational expectations and expectation levels, intensity of occupational aspiration and level of intensity, certainty of occupational expectations, and residence and occupational projections. The investigation concluded that, for most categories, there was considerable stability between 1966 and 1972. (KM)
