The Social Stratification of Choice in the Transition to Adulthood
European Sociological Review, 2019
URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
The occurrence and timing of major demographic decisions in the transition to adulthood is stronglystratified, with young adults with a high socio-economic status (SES) background usually experienc-ing many of these events later than young adults with a low SES background. To explain this socialstratification, we outline a theoretical framework in which social stratification affects choice in thetransition to adulthood through three, potentially reinforcing, pathways: stratified socialization, stratifiedagency, and stratified opportunity. We test our framework against longitudinal data from two waves ofthe Generations and Gender Surveys for Austria, Bulgaria, and France. We find evidence for the import-ance of all three pathways. Furthermore, processes differ little by gender, age and country context.
