Abstract

This article reports an analysis of the presence and sources of discrepancies in the class identifications of married couples. Among a sample of 489 married couples, about half report different levels of class identification if either spouse identifies as working class. Further analysis suggests that differences occur, in part, because husbands base class identification only upon their own achievements and family income, while wives take into account the achievements of both spouses.
