Abstract

The report presents patterns and trends of social mobility by ethnic group for the last 50 years. The report measures social mobility as the socio-economic changes that can be observed between fathers’ (or parents’) class position and sons’ or daughters’ position. This can be further differentiated into upward mobility (where children have better jobs than their fathers had), and downward mobility (where children have lower status jobs than those of their parents).

The report explores social mobility between 2 generations – the parental generation (first generation), and those born in the UK or arriving before the age of 13 (the second generation).
