Development process may entail changes in the socio-economic positions of people from one generation to the other. In Pakistan, no attempt has so far been made to study the lines on which people gain upward mobility or the factors which are involved in this process. This paper is an attempt in this direction. By using data from primary sources, we aim at .explaining the income and wealth positions of Pakistanis from different generations in terms of their endowments of social, human and physical capital and other socio-economic characteristics. The assessment of incidence and nature of such mobility would enable us to identify the processes through which different socio-economic groups attempt to improve their positions in a changing society.
