Abstract:

A study was made possible differences between the achievement of first-, only-, and last-born children. Middle-born children appeared to do less well in academic achievement, but their occupational achievement did not differ significantly from the other birth-order groups. Sibling-identification may affect the occupational achievement of last-born offspring, while parental activity appears to influence the achievement of first- and only-born children. Other relationships are also discussed. Modified author abstract
