Occupational Status of Fathers and their Sons


Cross-classification of a sample of British males according to each subject's occupational status and his father's occupational status.




A table of counts, with classifying factors origin (father's occupational status; levels 1:8) and destination (son's occupational status; levels 1:8).


Goodman, L. A. (1979) Simple Models for the Analysis of Association in Cross-Classifications having Ordered Categories. J. Am. Stat. Assoc., 74 (367), 537–552.

The data set has been in package gnm and been provided by the package authors.


require(stats); require(graphics)plot(occupationalStatus)##  Fit a uniform association model separating diagonal effects
Diag <- as.factor(diag(1:8))
Rscore <- scale(as.numeric(row(occupationalStatus)), scale = FALSE)
Cscore <- scale(as.numeric(col(occupationalStatus)), scale = FALSE)
modUnif <- glm(Freq ~ origin + destination + Diag + Rscore:Cscore,
               family = poisson, data = occupationalStatus)summary(modUnif)
plot(modUnif) # 4 plots, with warning about  h_ii ~= 1
