High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Occupational prestige
(also known as job prestige) refers to the consensual nature of
rating a job based on the collective belief of its worthiness. Job
prestige did not become a fully developed concept until 1947 when
the National Opinion Research Center (NORe, under the leadership of
Cecil C. North, conducted a survey which held questions regarding
age, education, and income in regard to the prestige of certain
jobs. This was the first time job prestige had ever been
researched, measured, and taught. Duncan's Socioeconomic Index
(DSI) became one of the most important outcomes of this survey, as
it gave various occupational categories different scores based on
the surveys results as well as the result of the 1950 Census of
Population. During the 1960s the NORC did a second generation of
surveys which became the basis for the socioeconomic status score
until the 1980s as well as the foundation for Trieman's
International Prestige Scale in 1977.
