[fre] Cette étude, essentiellement descriptive, cherche à caractériser les transformations de la mobilité salariale en France entre 1967 et 1987. La forte baisse de cette mobilité constitue notre résultat principal et robuste. Comme aux États-Unis, les probabilités de rester dans le même décile de salaire se sont accrues, particulièrement au bas de la distribution. L'analyse des cohortes successives révèle la situation privilégiée des cohortes les plus anciennes ainsi que la détérioration des positions initiales des cohortes les plus récentes, sauf pour les diplômés de l'enseignement supérieur. [eng] Our descriptive analysis characterizes the changes of wage mobility in France between 1967 and 1987. Mobility has strongly decreased under the period. This result is robust. As in the United States, the probability to remain in each decile has increased, in particular at the bottom end of the distribution. Older cohorts are in a much better situation than younger ones, except for college graduates.
