Movilidad intergeneracional y raza en Uruguay

  • Education


In this paper we analyze intergenerational educational mobility for afro-descendants and no afro-descendants in Uruguay. We consider the relationship between educational achievements of teenagers and their parents’. The results show that relative mobility is higher among afro-descendants than among no-afro descendants and that absolute mobility is higher than relative mobility among afro descendants. We also estimate the educational expected gap between afro and no-afro teenagers. The gap observed between teenagers is similar than the gap observed between parents. Finally, educational differences among parents explain more than a half of the teenager gap.
