Quotation Schneebaum, Alyssa, Rumplmaier, Bernhard, Altzinger, Wilfried. 2014. Gender and Migration Background in Intergenerational Educational Mobility. WWWforEurope Policy Paper no 11.




We employ 2011 European Union Survey on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) data for Austria to perform Markovian mobility matrix analysis and uni- and multivariate econometric analysis to study intergenerational educational mobility by gender and migration background. We find that the educational attainment of girls and migrants relative to their parents is less mobile than for boys and natives. Further, the immobility of educational attainment is enhanced by the intersection of these identities: migrant girls are the least educationally mobile group and are especially likely to follow their mothers’ educational footsteps, while native boys are the most mobile, especially compared to their mothers.
