|Title:||Detroit Area Study, 1970 [United States]: Careers in Detroit|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Cole, Robert|
|Abstract:||Information on jobs and career patterns was obtained in this study of male workers, 16 years of age or older who have worked for pay for six months or longer. This study probed into the job histories of the 638 respondents in order to determine the occupational mobility of the worker. In addition, other questions were asked to determine what aspects of the job were most satisfying to the respondent and to assess what job opportunities were available to him now and would be available in the future. The data include demographic characteristics of the respondent as well.|
