Marital Plans of Women and the Formation of Mobility-Linked Attitudes in the South.
Kirklin, Sharon Kay
The relationship between the marital plans and mobility-linked attitudes (those pertaining to variables subject to upward or downward mobility) of young women in the South were investigated. Specific goals were to determine by race, the relationship between marital plans and (1) level of educational aspirations (LEA) and (2) level of occupational aspirations (LOA). The research strategy employed was to utilize repeated measurement panel data with path analytic techniques as a partial solution. Data were obtained from a 3-wave, 6-year panel of Southern youth with nonmetropolitan origins. The reduced panel size for this study was 147 single females (63 whites and 84 blacks). Some findings were: (1) stability correlations were generally stable for both races; (2) mobility-linked attitudes were generally more stable than marital plans of either race; and (3) there was no causal relationship between marital plans and LOA for either race.
