    In this paper the relationship between intergenerational social mobility and occupational satisfaction is being explored, using data from The Stockholm Birth Cohort Study (SBC). The study tests a hypothesis according to which individuals, when as adults evaluating their occupational status, tend to compare themselves to their parents. No support is found for this perspective. Instead the differences in occupational satisfaction that exist can be explained by occupational status at time of interview, regardless of class of origin. Generally the level of occupational satisfaction among the respondents is very high – only some 12 percent state that they wish to radically change their occupational status.
