Abstract : A summary report is made on a comparative study of the conditions under which innovation and change are accepted in developing nations. It is shown that major determinants of status segregation as over against status association does not lie in socio-demographic factors but in the relation between status group and control center (government). Different types of status segregation are closely correlated with their access to and 'distance' from the central control; while increase in class association is correlated with the degree of participation in 'center' formation. These patterns are illustrated by comparative analyses of Asian and Latin American countries. (Author)
