Project Description

A strong association between incomes across generations—with children from poor families likely to be poor as adults—is frequently considered an indicator of insufficient equality of opportunity. Studies of such “intergenerational persistence,” or lack of intergenerational mobility, measure the strength of the relationship between parents’ socio-economic status and that of their children as adults. Though plenty of studies in the literature the spatial dimension of intergenerational mobility and how locational deprivation may persist across generations in the form of poor labour market outcomes have been understudied. Particularly the poor intergenerational mobility across different immigrant populations with respect to their location choices still to be explored.
The research project will focus on analyzing intergenerational income distribution patterns in the UK with special interest in methodological advances to measure redistribution of income in general and intergenerational income in particular.
