The Stability of Longitudinal and Cross-Sectional Occupational Prestige Rankings
Fossum, John A.; Moore, Michael L.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, 7, 3, 305-311, Dec 75
The stability of occupational prestige rankings over time and among cross-sectional subgroups was demonstrated. Undergraduates from different regions, hometown sizes, and political orientations ranked occupations similarly in terms of relative prestige. The rank-order correlations of prestige were .88 with a 1925 study, .93 with a 1947 study, and .95 with a 1968 study. (Author)
