Intergenerational Educational and Occupational Mobility in Spain: Does Gender Matter?
De Pablos Escobar, Laura; Gil Izquierdo, María
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v37 n5 p721-742 2016
This paper explores the changes in intergenerational mobility seen in Spain during the last century. It examines educational and occupational mobility, paying particular attention to the existence of a differentiated gender effect. The magnitude of the historical changes that have taken place in Spain during the twentieth century and the scarcity of studies in this field increase the value of this paper. More specifically, the paper seeks to describe how the situation has changed with the social-economic and education policy developments in democratic Spain, especially with regards to women. The main results show that while educational mobility has improved, there has been no such significant change in occupational mobility.
