Intergenerational Earnings Mobility in Italy

Sauro Mocetti
Published Online: 2007-12-21 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1935-1682.1794


This paper contributes to the growing number of studies on intergenerational mobility by providing a measure of earnings elasticity for Italy. The absence of an appropriate data set is overcome by adopting the two-sample two-stage least squares method. The analysis, based on the Survey of Household Income and Wealth, shows that intergenerational mobility is lower in Italy than it is in other developed countries. We also examine the reasons why the long-term labor market success of children is related to that of their fathers.

Keywords: intergenerational earnings elasticity; two-sample two-stage least squares estimation; social mobility
