This study, conducted in Chile in 1964, included four different samples: Sample A, containing young people 12-14 years of age, Sample B, made up of respondents 16-22 years of age, Sample C, comprising adults, and Sample D, composed of primary and secondary school teachers. The study was undertaken to assess attitudes toward jobs and education in children and young adults, whose future was yet undecided, and in working adults in general and teachers in particular, whose occupations and educations were already established. Variables measured the respondents' highest educational and occupational aspirations in comparison with realistic appraisals of their jobs at the time of the interview and what they might be doing in the future. The study further explored important factors in deciding upon an occupation, as well as the advantages enjoyed by an educated person. Respondents in Samples B, C, and D were asked to evaluate certain goals of the Chilean education system, their desirability, and the degree to which they were fulfilled. These respondents were also asked to rate, on a high-to-low scale, the social prestige of given occupations in Chile. A major portion of the study examined the appeal that various aspects of jobs had for respondents: personal contact with supervisors, fellow workers, and clientele, fixed versus relaxed time schedules, supervision, initiative required, responsibility assumed, intensity of work, physical effort necessary, and variety of duties performed.
