A Study on Intergenerational Mobility

Inter-generational Mobility — change of status across generations

Muslims biggest losers in intergenerational Mobility Index — Mobility levels

for African Americans in US are better than those for Muslims in India

SCs & STs have done better and upper castes and OBCs remain where they are

South India is more inclusive, as is urban India and education acts as a booster
of prospects

While India’s growth has made almost everyone a lot better off, it has not
changed the rate of churn at all — if you started at bottom, you’re just as likely
to finish at bottom as you would have in 1950s

Conclusion : little inter-generational mobility and it hasn’t changed even after
