In this paper we perform an empirical analysis of status consistency in a post-communist society. We suggest three arguments why the crystallization of various dimensions of social status can be expected after the fall of communism. First of all, post-communist societies have experienced a significant increase in income and wealth inequality. Second, there have been significant changes in the class structure and third, processes that generate inequality and social structure have been changing as well. The analysis demonstrates the increase in status consistency in the Czech republic in the 1991- 1997 period. Further we explore the degree of status inconsistency in different subpopulations and in the end we focus on political consequences of status inconsistency as well.
