Influence of Socioeconomic Status on Children's Classification and Free Recall.
Bjorklund, David F.; Weiss, Sara C.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v77 n2 p119-28 Apr 1985
Young children were grouped according to socioeconomic status determined by their parents' educational level (college, high school, or less). Subjects were assigned tasks on sets of pictures which could be organized on the basis of taxonomic or complementary relations. There were no significant differences in level of recall or clustering.
