Intergenerational social mobility of ethnic groups

The intergenerational social mobility of minority ethnic groups is an ISER Working Paper.

The paper examines the intergenerational social mobility of different ethnic groups in Britain between 1971 and 1991. Using data from the ONS Longitudinal Study, it describes the different patterns of class mobility experienced by a single cohort of children aged 8-15 in 1971 from each of three ethnic groups: white non-migrants, Indians and Caribbeans.
