MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of the present study is to investigate the relationship between patental social mobility and (a) subjects' status aspirations, (b) perceived parental status expectations. The subject population utilized consisted of 263 male students in the final year of junior high school. Two major hypotheses were tested by this investigation. Hypothesis I was that the level of subjects' status aspirations would be found to be a positive monotonic function of the extent of parental social mobility. Hypothesis II was that the level of perceived parental status expectations would be found to be a positive monotonic function of the extent of parental social mobility. [TRUNCATED]
