SOCIAL STATUS OF HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD AND TRIP GENERATION FROM HOME

THE SOCIAL SCIENTIST HAS FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS MADE USE OF THE CONCEPT SOCIAL STATUS IN EXPLAINING DIFFERENTIAL PATTERNS OF BEHAVIOR. HE HAS, MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, USED OCCUPATION OR INCOME TO OPERATIONALIZE THIS CONCEPT FOR SELECTIVELY GROUPING HOUSEHOLDS INTO VARIOUS SOCIAL STATUS CLASSES. THIS PAPER EXPLORES IN DETAIL, USING THE HOME INTERVIEW SURVEY DATA GATHERED IN 1961 BY THE PUGET SOUND REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION STUDY /PSRTS/, THE RELATIONSHIPS OF SOCIAL STATUS AND TRIP PRODUCTION FROM THE HOM. COMPARISONS AND COMMENTS ON SIMILAR RESEARCH DONE IN THIS AREA BY SHULDINER AND STOWERS ARE INCLUDED. /AUTHOR/
