Some Structural Equation Models of Sibling Resemblance in Educational Attainment and Occupational Status. Revised.
Hauser, Robert M.; Mossel, Peter A.
Skeletal models of the regression of occupational status on schooling that correct for response variability and incorporate a variance component structure are presented. The models were derived from an analysis which used multiple measurements of educational attainment and occupational status for 518 male high school graduates and their brothers. The first section of the document compares the simple regressions of occupational status on schooling between brothers without correcting for response variability. Section 2 specifies a structural model with distinct regressions of occupational status on schooling for families, primary respondents, and brothers. Section 3 develops a measurement model for regressions of status on schooling and compares the corrected regressions of primary respondents and their brothers. Section 4 combines the measurement model with a family variance component structure. The remainder of the document discusses possible elaborations and extensions of this work. (KC)
