Data from the National Longitudinal Surveys of Young Women 1978 (n=1,738), 1983 (n=1,812), and 1988 (n=1,968) show that an occupation's gender composition affected reported experiences of sex discrimination but not self-efficacy or gender-role beliefs. Gender composition affected self-efficacy. Overall, the data did not support social psychological explanations of women's gender-typed occupational mobility. (Contains 44 references.) (SK)
