The intergenerational transmission of educational attainment in Russia

Research outputpeer-review

Abstract

We use panel data over 1994-2013 to estimate the determinants of educational attainment of Russian children aged of 30-65. We found that children’s educational achievements are strongly affected by fathers’ educational attainment. The pattern of the intergenerational education mobility depends on gender and locality. The upward education mobility of daughters prevails. The downward education mobility prevails among sons, especially in regions specializing in extraction and processing of natural resources. The downward pattern of son’s education mobility disappears in the Central region, where sons are expected to achieve the same educational attainment their fathers have.
