How important is cultural background for the level of intergenerational mobility?
Abstract: Using results on brother correlations in permanent
earnings for different groups of second generation immigrants based on
administrative data from Denmark, this letter analyzes the role of cultural
background in the determination of the level of intergenerational mobility.
The results indicate that cultural background is not a major determinant of
the level of intergenerational economic mobility
