Intergenerational Transmission of Education among Female Immigrants
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
This paper uses high-quality register data to perform one of the first analyzes of the intergenerational transmission of education among immigrant mothers and their daugthers. The paper also raises several methodological points related to functional form and measurement error in immigrants' education.
The results show that the persistence is slightly lower among immigrants compared to natives, and that the relationship is weaker among those who start out disadvantaged. I find large variations across different immigrant groups, but these differences are partly explained by the fact that groups belong to different parts of the educational distribution.
