Social Development, v11 n4 p508-33 2002
This study developed and examined a multidimensional, interdisciplinary model of social status among 487 fourth- through sixth-grade students. Seven subtypes were identified based on dimensions of likability, perceived popularity, and social dominance (high status, perceived popular/dominant, well-liked/dominant, average, low dominant/unpopular, disliked, and low status). The cluster solution was supported by cluster differences in peer-reported prerogatives of status and self- reported social characteristics. Each cluster had a distinct behavioral profile.
