Is Occupational Mobility Declining in the United States?
Rytina, Steven
Social Forces, v78 n4 p1227-76 Jun 2000
Trends in occupational mobility for U.S. males, 1972-90, were analyzed using three occupational scales providing different indicators of occupational status and social stratification. Results indicate stable or increasing rigidity in U.S. occupational stratification, with a decline in education's importance, both as key to achieving high rank and as mediator of rank persistence across generations.
