Comparative analysis of intergenerational educational mobility in Spain and Mexico

César Augusto Ricardi Morgavi


This article presents a compared perspective analysis of the absolute and relative intergenerational educational mobility in the Mexican and Spanish societies. Educational reproduction and upward and downward mobility are analyzed working from transition matrixes of educational mobility, with and without the integration of the temporal factor of the birth cohorts. The levels of educational ascription through inherited positions, and the degrees of educational permeability in both countries are analyzed; relative, structural and replacement educational mobility is also studied through the compared evaluation of log-linear models applied to the study of educational mobility in a context of educational expansion, subsequent economic crisis and reduction of public expense in education.
