Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clifford C. Clogg, a talented sociologist, demographer, and statistician, died suddenly on 7 May 1995 at the age of 45. Although best known for his methodological contributions, Clogg also made significant substantive contributions to the study of social stratification and the labor force. This book highlights those contributions by telling the cumulative story of his research and adding update analysis that advances the story beyond the early 1980s to the mid-1990s.

Book News Annotation:

An introduction for social scientists and students to some of the basic ideas in the study of the labor force that the late (1995) sociologist, demographer, and statistician Clark (Pennsylvania State U.-University Park), Scott R. Eliason (U. of Minnesota) and Kevin T. Leicht (U. of Iowa) worked on from the middle 1980s to the middle 1990s. After reviewing the reasons for studying the labor force, setting out their Labor Utilization Framework, and explaining its uses and transformations; they use it to analyze trends in labor force activity, social mobility, socioeconomic attainment, and labor force issues. They also review recent studies using it, and project a research schedule for the future.
