Summary
This data collection contains the prestige ratings that respondents to the 1989 General Social Survey assigned to various occupations. The purpose of the collection was to replicate the benchmark study of occupational prestige conducted by Hodge, Siegel, and Rossi (HSR) in 1964, while expanding the number of rated occupations to include all 503 detailed occupational categories in the 1980 Census. Additional titles were added from the HSR study and several other studies of occupational prestige, for a total of 704 occupational titles. Respondents were divided into 10 subsamples, with each subsample rating 110 occupations. The first 40 titles presented to each respondent were the same for all subsamples. As in the HSR study, respondents were asked to rate the occupations on a scale of 1 to 9. To promote comparability with the HSR study, both the nature of the task respondents were asked to perform (ranking titles) and the wording of the instructions were the same in both studies
