Gender and Migration Background in Intergenerational Educational Mobility
Schneebaum, Alyssa; Rumplmaier, Bernhard; Altzinger, Wilfried
Education Economics, v24 n3 p239-260 2016
We employ 2011 European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions survey data for Austria to perform uni- and multivariate econometric analyses to study the role of gender and migration background (MB) in intergenerational educational mobility. We find that there is more persistence in the educational attainment of girls relative to their parents than there is for boys. Migrant men are the most mobile group, and migrant women are the least mobile, showing the importance of conducting an analysis which looks at the intersections of MB and gender in social and economic outcomes.
