This chapter discusses various aspects of stratification in the social organization of long-term care. In educational attainment, the members of our population ranged from zero to eighteen years. The inconsistencies in the directions of relationships suggested that the variable of educational attainment, alone, was not sufficient to explain the observed variation in ability to pay, or economic status. Even though the development of organized labor in the United States has led to improved working conditions, wages, and fringe benefits for many workers, the gains made by black workers, in spite of increasing levels of education, have been significantly fewer and far more gradual, overall, than the gains made by white Americans and other non-black workers. Neither level of education nor physical self-maintenance ability was significantly related to the probability that impersonal bureaucrats would intervene in the process of finding new homes and relocating the elderly persons.
