Life Chances and Support for Equality and Equity as Normative and Counternormative Distribution Rules.
Ritzman, Rosemary L.; Tomaskovic-Devey, Donald
Social Forces, v70 n3 p745-63 Mar 1992
Analysis of national survey data showed that the equity principle (those who contribute more should receive higher rewards) is a dominant U.S. social value, varying with education but not other life-chance differences. Equality counternorms were related to all life-chance variables, particularly race and income. Contains 30 references. (SV)
