Through the same period, a trend toward reduced income inequality in succeeding cohorts also occurred. Cross-sectional comparisons thus might be expected to show a smaller amount of diversity among the young in terms of role configurations, resource availability, and other factors strictly as an artifact of cohort differences resulting from historical trends (see Dannefer & Sell, in press, for a fuller discussion of this point).
