Abstract:
The present study aims to ascertain the change if any in the occupational status of the Scheduled Castes and to determine the factors that influence intergenerational mobility. Purposive multistage sampling has been used to select 50 households from each of the three major Scheduled Castes in the study area namely Chamars, Meghs and Mahashas. Therefore a total of 150 Scheduled Caste households were covered in the study and respondents were interviewed using a well structured schedule. The Chi-Square test for independence of attributes has been used to examine the association between the son's and father's occupation. The study concludes that the education and occupation of the father along with the respondents' own education are the key determinants influencing his occupation. The higher the education or occupation of the father, it is more likely that the son will end up getting a higher education or higher occupation.
