Abstract

Previous research has shown that an energy-consumption measure of industrial economy correlates moderately strongly with cross-national variation in the rate of father-to-son occupational mobility when the latter is measured as total or observed mobility but not when only the circulation component of status change is considered. In this paper we extend that line of research by examining the hypothesized relationships of six other measures or correlates of industrial development and growth: population distribution of educational attainments, extent of mass communications, urbanization, rate of geographic mobility, current and capital investments in education, and ethnic-linguistic diversity of population. Results of the analysis reproduce the earlier conclusion.
