Abstract
In this analysis of stratification in a rural village based on surveys asking villagers to rank the various professions and ethnic groups within the village, other questions asked concern religiosity, futures desired for children, marital preferences, and perceived class standing. The most significant differences correlate with the two major classes—landlords and their employees—and, to a lesser degree, with caste and profession.
