Summary
This is the second of two studies conducted by the principal investigator concerning career patterns and values in Latin American countries (see also CAREER VALUES IN BRAZIL, 1960 [ICPSR 7042]). The present study was carried out in 1963 in both urban and rural areas of Mexico. The variables assessed the respondents' occupations at the time they were interviewed, the length of their employment, what they liked most and least about their jobs, and their incomes. Further questions explored past occupations, the highest level of education attained, and the extent to which lack of education had handicapped respondents' careers. A major portion of the study probed the respondents' feelings about the nature of jobs and people: the importance of ambition and determination in one's job, individual versus group interests, how best to "get ahead," the importance of family ties, the tendency to trust others, and corruption in urban centers. A number of recodes and derived measures are included. Demographic information covers age, marital status, number of children, religion, and father's occupation
