Applying a British Class Scheme to Swedish Data
Abstract:To compare differences in social class among countries one needs a method of strategy that ensures comparability. Much speaks for the method of applying the class scheme of one country to the data of the other country by recoding each country's class scheme. One example of recoding is the application of the British Registrar General's social classes to Swedish data. Finally, the Swedish definitions and divisions of social class are evaluated and found to be adequate.
Keywords:Comparative research; social classes; Britain; Sweden.
