Intergenerational income mobility: The transmission of socio-economic status in Spain

Contents:

Author Info

  • Pascual, Marta

Abstract

Intergenerational income mobility affects equal opportunity norms and it is very important to analyse the extent to which income status passed from generation to generation. This paper is focused on the study of intergenerational transmission of socio-economic status in Spain using data from the European Community Household Panel. In particular, the relationship between earnings and occupational status of parents and their children are analysed. The evidence obtained suggests that individual income depends on the socio-economic status of their parents. Thus, some reforms, specially school and health policies could modify the equality of opportunity.
