The Pew Charitable Trusts. Does America promote mobility as well as other nations? Washington, DC, 2011. Pages: 5.
In an effort to better understand how Americans’ socioeconomic mobility outcomes compare with those of their counterparts in other nations, the Pew Economic Mobility Project partnered with the Russell Sage Foundation and the Sutton Trust to prepare a multi-country study on economic mobility, under the title Cross-National Research on Intergenerational Transmission of Advantage (CRITA). Researchers in 10 countries investigated how socioeconomic advantage, as measured by parents’ levels of education, is transmitted over the course of an individual’s life.
The preliminary findings of the CRITA initiative have been presented in a report Does America promote mobility as well as other nations? A complete analysis of these findings will be presented in a forthcoming book, From Parents to Children: The Intergenerational Transmission of Advantage, which will be published by the Russell Sage Foundation in spring 2012.Pew’s Economic Mobility Project
