The study presents an assessment of the contribution of inequality of opportunities due to the education and professional status of an individual’s parents to the inequality of wages of men aged 26–60 years living in urban areas. For evaluation, a parametric approach was used, based on a comparison of actual inequality of achievements with inequality of counterfactual achievements. The analysis was performed separately for the three age cohorts to assess the contribution of inequality of opportunity to inequality of achievement in a time perspective. The study is based on data from the 20th wave of the Russian Monitoring of the Economic Situation and Public Health of the HSE.
