Cosby, Arthur G.; And Others
The 66 annotations given in this bibliography are from status projection literature resulting from U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Regional Research Project S-61 "Development of Human Resource Potentials and Mobility in the Rural South" completed by the summer of 1971. Most of the studies reported conform to the following restrictions: (1) Regional Standardized to the 6 "deep south" states of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Texas; (2) Developmentally Standardized to either high school age sophomore or senior youths; (3) Historically Standardized in that data collection for the sophomore wave was restricted to 1966-67 period and the senior wave to the 1968-69 period; (4) Operationally Standardized in that common instrument (regional interview schedule) and measurement procedures were used; and (5) Conceptually Standardized in that status projections were conceptualized as having both aspirational and expectational components. Each abstract gives the study's time and place, respondents' characteristics, sample selection, dependent and independent variables, and the results. Content and author indexes are provided to facilitate selective use of the abstracts given. A listing of other bibliographies on the status projections of youth is also provided. (NQ)
