Abstract Analysis of household survey data collected from three villages of West Bengal, India, shows that caste status continues to be significantly related to structure. However, class status - whether based on occupation or landownership - has a stronger & statistically more significant relationship with family structure. Further analysis shows that both occupational classes & caste structure are strongly related to landownership & also show statistically significant relationships with each other. It appears that it is because of their strong relationship with landownership that occupational classes & caste structure maintain significant relationships with family structure. 7 Tables, 22 References.
