Gurin, Patricia; And Others
Social Psychology, v41 n4 p275-96 Dec 1978
Factor analysis of Rotter's Internal-External Locus of Control Scale using a national sample replicated the distinction between personal control and control ideology. Personal control, but not control ideology, was related to higher socioeconomic status and mastery efforts over personal environment. External control ideology was related to greater political participation. (Author/BH)
