Turner, Sherri L.; Lapan, Richard T.
Journal of Career Assessment, v11 n4 p405-20 Nov 2003
The Mapping Vocational Challenges inventory was completed by 217 at-risk inner-city adolescents and 198 suburban middle-class adolescents. Exploratory factor analyses found only four of six Holland themes accurately portrayed both groups' conception of occupations. Suburban adolescents had more occupational information and better-defined concept of pathways. (Contains 30 references.) (SK)
