tracking recent changes in absolute income mobility in Canada /

"This article in the Economic Insights series provides Canadian evidence of recent changes in intergenerational income mobility in Canada. The study uses a unique Canadian database that directly links children and their parents and provides information on their incomes. The analysis focuses on absolute income mobility—often seen as an indicator of economic opportunity in a society. The study suggests that the rates of absolute mobility measured at age 30 have remained stable for Canadians born between 1970 and 1984"--p. 1.
