Intergenerational mobility: A dream deferred?
This report reviews evidence on intergenerational mobility, which measures the extent to which children’s labour market outcomes are independent of the outcomes of their parents. The report first reviews evidence on descriptive questions, documenting that mobility levels vary considerably across countries, and even across areas within countries. Mobility appears to be substantially lower in low-income than in high-income countries, but even among countries of similar income levels large differences can be seen. Moreover, in countries or areas with larger income disparities, children’s outcomes tend to depend more strongly on parental outcomes. A key focus is on the underlying drivers of intergenerational mobility: what factors and policies contribute to higher mobility?
