Instructions for Differences in Occupational Prestige

This is a study of judgments of differences in occupational prestige. How prestigious is it to be a physician? How prestigious is it to be a plumber? Your task is to judge the difference between the first and second occupations. Use the following scale:
1=first occupation is very much less prestigious than the second
2=first occupation is much less prestigious than the second
3=first occupation is less prestigious than the second
4=first occupation is slightly less prestigious than the second
5=first occupation is equally as prestigious as the second
6=first occupation is slightly more prestigious than the second
7=first occupation is more prestigious than the second
8=first occupation is much more prestigious than the second
9=first occupation is very much more prestigious than the second

Please use integers from 1 to 9 to rate the difference in prestige between the first and second occupations.
