Abstract: The Occupational Changes in a Generation, 1973 survey was designed to explore the effects that peoples' backgrounds, schooling, training in the military, and their early work experiences have on their work careers. The 1973 study was a replicate and extension of the 1962 Occupational Changes in a Generation survey conducted by the U.S. Bureau of the Census on behalf of Peter M. Blau and Otis Dudley Duncan to examine the extent and sources of social mobility in the United States. The 1973 survey was conducted as a supplement to the March 1973 Current Population Survey. The data include education, occupation and industry, and earnings for men aged 20 to 65 and their wives; number of siblings and paternal education, occupation, and industry for man and their wives; and additional social background and work-history variables for men. There are approximately 557 variables.
