Measuring Occupation Aspiration in Research on Sex Differences--An Overview and Analysis of Issues.
Maxwell, Graham S.; Cumming, J. Joy
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v32 n1 p60-73 Feb 1988
Contends that use of occupational prestige scale to code occupations when investigating sex differences in occupational aspirations and expectations is not appropriate because of inherent sex biases. Addresses development of early prestige scales, apparent congruence of prestige ratings by men and women, and effect of sex on prestige ratings and on perception of desirability of occupations.
