The authors analyze the relationship between organizational participation and estimates expressed with regard to social organizations, and such characteristics of the rural population's social status as: educational background, socio-profoaaional membership, and place of dwelling. The point here is not only to provide an answer to the question whether there takos place any stable relationship between these variables but also to determine its direction as well as which of the above mentioned independent variables is of the most essential importance for participation in formal organizations. Moreover the authors analyze a problem to what extent the results of researches presented höre are convergent with the results obtained through other researches conducted both in Poland and abroad. Appropriately to the problem examined here we mode the following starting hypotheses; There occur constant statistical convergences between participation in formal organizations and attitudes towards them and the above mentioned characteristics of the social differentiation of individuals. 2. Statistical convergences between participation and attitudes towards organizetione. and the social position of an individual are positively directed. That means that the higher values on the 6cala of variables of participation and attitudes are usually accompanied by higher values on particular scales of the social standing, while lower variable values of participation and attitudes - by lower values of the social status variables. 3. Educational background and socio-professional membership belong to variables differentiating to the greatest extent, formal participation and types of attitudes in relation to organizations and assotiations to which inihabitans of village belong. 4. The above causalities do not represent specific features for the Polish village but they confirm the existence of more general causalities, which can be observed also in Western societies. 5. Participation in formal organizations is thus an essential factor of the social differentiation of the rural population petrifying the remaining dimensions such as income levels, educational background and socio-professional membership.
