Almost Random Careers: The Wisconsin School Superintendency, 1940-1972
March, James C.; March, James G.
Administrative Science Quarterly, 22, 3, 377-409, Sep 77
This paper considers one system of careers, Wisconsin school superintendents from 1940 through 1972, and examines the extent to which statistical characteristics of that system are consistent with a simple Markov model that assumes both individuals and jobs to be indistinguishable and careers at that level to be essentially random.
