Abstract

This paper examines the ways in which individual’s income and subjective social status are determined by one’s work-related and personal factors and studies the ways in which social contexts shape social stratification in Japan, (South) Korea, and Taiwan from a comparative perspective. The empirical analysis using the 2005 SSM survey data has revealed that institutional factors such as Japanese employment practices strongly affect individuals’ remuneration and status and make the stratification structure highly multidimensional in Japan. While occupation, among work-related factors, is the predominant determinant of one’s income and subjective social status in Taiwan, employment type and firm size (only for men) also have a considerable independent influence in Japan. Korea appears to be placed between Japan and Taiwan.
