The effects of education, skills and motivation on the status attainment process: An international model

The study extends the conventional status attainment
model by including information on educational careers, learning motivation and adult skills. In order to bring in the cross-country perspective in the status attainment process, the aim is to develop a two-level model and regress social status on both individual- and country-level variables simultaneously. The study employs the OECD survey on adult skills (Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies, PIAAC).
