Data from the National Education Longitudinal Study, 1988-94, were used to examine career-related characteristics of rural and nonrural secondary students. The best predictors of transition status were occupational aspiration for college-bound youth, socioeconomic status (SES) for rural work-bound students, and SES and vocational education for nonrural adolescents.
