Social nedåtrörlighet mellan generationer. En prövning av tre perspektiv
INTERGENERATIONAL DOWNWARD MOBILITY – A TEST OF THREE THEORIES The study uses the unique longitudinal database The Stockholm Birth Cohort Study (SBC) to test three explanatory perspectives to intergenerational downward social mobility. Support is received for two of the three perspectives, but when analyses are performed for boys and girls separately, the explanations turn out to be gender specific. For girls structural factors are of importance, in the sense that longer family traditions of high education and high job positions are needed for them to follow in the footsteps of their parents, than what tends to be the case for boys. For boys instead, individual factors are better predictors of downward social mobility. Absence from compulsory school and drug abuse are related to downward social mobility for boys, while not for girls.
