Summary

The purpose of this study was to examine metropolitan-nonmetropolitan and sex differences in the role models selected by Negro high school sophomores. A questionnaire was grouped-administered to 111 metropolitan males, 170 metropolitan females, 98 nonmetropolitan males, and 99 nonmetropolitan females. The results of the study indicated that sex does and place of residence does not make an important difference in the types of role models selected by Negro youth or in the occupational status of the role models. Important secondary findings were: (1) parents are not the most popular role models chosen by these Negro respondents: glamour figures are the most popular role models of metropolitan boys, nonmetropolitan girls, and nonmetropolitan boys; teachers are the most popular role models of metropolitan girls; and (2) family members, especially immediate family members, are frequently selected as role models by these Negro high school sophomores. Suggestions for future research include investigating why the person was chosen as a role model, why the occupation was chosen, and the effectiveness of the high school counselor and of various career information materials or programs. The bivariate relationship between role model choices and job market knowledge might also be explored. A related document is ED 048 971. (Author/HBC)
