1. Daniels, Kalasia. Status Attainment in the 21st Century: The Importance and Incorporation of Race within the Transition from School to Work.

Degree: PhD, Arts and Sciences: Sociology, 2019, University of Cincinnati

Research on status attainment in the United States (U.S.), or an empirical accounting of how people move into higher or lower social positions in society, has always had a difficult time reconciling the “free” flow of people and the menacing realities of racial inequities. Scholars ponder whether or not it is people’s achievement factors, ascriptive factors, or both that leads to certain individuals’ finding more success in their life trajectories than others. Race, and it’s understanding of whiteness, is not a measure systematically interrogated for status attainment. Instead, status attainment models sampled primarily Whites, males, or White males to study and then apply their findings to all racial and gendered groups. Using status attainment findings on Whites, males, and White males to better understand Blacks’ and Latinx’ educational and occupational attainment reifies majority-minority deficit models and also assumes the effect of race is limited to people of color. Using the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97), I use interaction effects and race-specific modeling to examine and analyze Black, White, and Latinx Millennials’ status attainment outcomes in early adulthood. I find that White Millennials experience advantage in school, first job after highest degree completed, and later status attainment at age 30. Some of this advantage can be attributed to wealth differences along the status attainment trajectory. Black Millennials’ lack of wealth impacts their bachelor’s degree and later status attainment. Latinx Millennials’ labor market experience matter more in their status attainment trajectory than Whites and Blacks. I conclude that future studies in the sociology of education, work, and status attainment must add measures of wealth and use race-specific modeling, or interaction effects to better understand the importance of race in 21st century status attainment.
