EU Sources - Eurofound report: Decline in social mobility - April 30, 2017

Younger Europeans are likely to have fewer opportunities for upward social mobility than preceding generations. Most common indicators to measure social mobility include either income or occupation. Social mobility in Europe seems to have stagnated with opportunities for upward social mobility only increasing in a minority of EU countries for all age groups; in some Member States there is even evidence of decline in social mobility. These are the main findings of Eurofound’s report Social mobility in the EU, which is the first of its kind to look at the issue throughout the European Union.
