Title:Economic mobility of black and white families
Organization:Economic Mobility Project
Short Description:This chapter explores the differences between white and black families with regard to economic success and income mobility. It seeks to answer two main questions, examining absolute and relative mobility.
Annotation:This chapter explores the differences between white and black families with regard to economic success and income mobility. It seeks to answer two main questions. The first, focusing on absolute mobility, asks about the economic progress of white and black families over recent generations. Do children of black and white Americans advance beyond their parents in terms of family income? The second question, focusing on relative mobility, asks about movement up and down the income ladder. Do black and white children starting on similar rungs on the ladder have an equal shot at rising in society?
