Informant Classification

I am trying to find details on the SES classification Labov used in his
New York studies, and our library doesn't have his _Social Stratification
of English in NYC_.

In other works reporting from this study, he uses the 0-9 SES scale but
doesn't give details.  I vaguely know that the 0-9 score is based upon
values for education, occupation, and income.

Can anyone on the list provide me with details for the scoring and
classification he used?

Virtually, Terry
