A group-specific measure of intergenerational persistence

Author

Listed:
  • Hertz, Tom

Abstract

I describe a method for comparing intergenerational mobility for different groups, taking account of both within- and between-group effects. When group means differ, this method yields results that are more informative than is the comparison of within-group estimates alone.
