The System of Occupations: Modeling Occupations in Sociodemographic Space.
Rotolo, Thomas; McPherson, J. Miller
Social Forces, v79 n3 p1095-1130 Mar 2001
Analysis of the age and education composition of occupations in Current Population Survey Annual Demographic Files, 1972-82, supports an ecological model in which occupations compete for members in a shifting niche space defined by members' sociodemographic characteristics. In contrast, the movement of professions in the education dimension appears to be limited by certification requirements. (Contains 63 references.) (Author/SV)
