Intergenerational Earnings and Income Mobility in Vietnam


  • Thang Dang


This paper empirically examines the intergenerational mobility of earnings and income in Vietnam using the two‐sample two‐stage least squares estimation. The baseline intergenerational elasticity estimates show that Vietnam occupies the intermediate degrees of intergenerational mobility of earnings and income for both sons and daughters. In particular, a rise of 10 per cent in fathers’ earnings is on average associated with an increase of 3.61 per cent and 3.94 per cent for sons’ earnings and income, respectively. The corresponding figures for daughters’ earnings and income are 2.84 per cent and 3.33 per cent, respectively.
