Overview

The careers of managers and professionals in large bureaucracies are generally contingent and form an interacting system of mobility—individual moves occur in chains of vacancies as one man replaces another. Harrison White has developed a series of mathematical models for analyzing mobility and measuring vacancy chains. Detailed sampling and coding procedures demonstrate the application of the models to such existing data as personnel registers while formulas are also included for determining turnover and career distribution.
