Abstract

In this paper sample survey data are used to compare the degree of status consistency for males in nine societies. Relationships among education, occupation, and income are examined as well as the relationship between industrialization and the degree of status consistency. The data show that there are substantial dissociations between the major hierarchies of inequality in these nine societies. Furthermore, the results suggest that level of industrialization may be a key determinant of the degree of status consistency; more specifically there appears to be a positive relationship between per capita energy consumption and the degree of status consistency.
