While this study gives somewhat more support to the common values theory than to the class differential varies theory, it does not provide strong support for either theory. Furthermore, it does not prove, as Han (1969) suggested, that both theories are operating depending upon the type of success values which is investigated. The findings for the occupation variables must be viewed with reservations. Nevertheless, despite these limitations, this study can be considered a positive contribution toward filling the void of information about females with respect to the relationship between socioeconomics status and success goals.
