Mobilidade Intergeracional De Renda No Brasil


  • Valéria Pero
  • Dimitri Szerman


This article adopt alternative methodologies to estimate the degree of integenerational income mobility in Brazil. We apply the two saomple instrumental variables used by Björklund e Jäntti (1997) and show that intergenerational persistence of family per capita income is greater than that of other income concepts. Moreover, all the measures based on transition matrices support previous findings on the less degree of intergenerational mobility compared to other developed countries. Finally, results based on Bénabou e Ok (2001) indicate that the mobility structure in Brazil reduce the Gini coefficient in 20 percentage points, wich means that inequality of opportunities accounts for nearly 65% of observed inequality.
