Abstract

We examine the intergenerational occupational mobility among men born during 1945-1985 in India. We distinguish between prevalence and association, and use the Altham Statistic as a measure of distance between son-father occupation associations across birth cohorts/social groups. We also attempt to isolate the specific odds ratios that account for the largest part of the distance. We find that the mobility in the 1975-1984 birth cohort is higher than the mobility in the 1945-1954 birth cohort. Scheduled Castes/Tribes born during 1965-1984 experienced a higher mobility compared with the entire 1965-1984 birth cohort or higher castes born during 1965-1984.
