Apple Doesn't Fall far: Intergenerational Education Mobility in Turkey
Apple Doesn't Fall far: Intergenerational Education Mobility in Turkey

Erkan DUMAN [1]


This study presents an in-depth review of the literature on intergenerational education mobility. The issues regarding consistent estimation of mobility coefficients as well the proposed solutions are elaborately discussed. In the light of the discussions, the strength of the intergenerational schooling association in Turkey is analyzed for father-son and father-daughter samples separately using a pooled sample of pairs living in the same household in any of the years between 2003 and 2011. The results suggest large persistence in intergenerational schooling—paternal and maternal correlation coefficients are 0.56 and 0.59 for sons, 0.63 and 0.73 for daughters—regardless of the gender of the child. The large mobility correlations may ask for the government to intervene in breaking the harmful schooling link across generations.
