SOCIAL MOBILITY




Social mobility is the movement of individuals or groups in social
standing social position, It may refer to classes, ethnic groups,
or entire nations, and may measure health status, literacy, or
education — but more commonly it refers to individuals or families,
and their change in income. It also typically refers to vertical
mobility—movement of individuals or groups up (or down) from one
socio-economic level to another, often by changing jobs or marriage;
but can also refer to horizontal mobility—movement from one position
to another within the same social level.

Social mobility can be the change in status between someone (or a group)
and their parents/previous family generations ("inter-generational"); or
over the change during one's lifetime ("intra-generational"). It can be
"absolute"—i.e. total amount of movement of people between classes,
usually over one generation (such as when education and economic
development raises the socio-economic level of a population); or
"relative"—an estimation of the chance of upward (or downward) social
mobility of a member of one social class in comparison with a member
from another class. A higher level of intergenerational mobility is
often considered a sign of greater fairness, or equality of opportunity,
in a society.

Mobility is enabled to a varying extent by economic capital, cultural
capital (such as higher education), human capital (such as competence
and effort in labour), social capital (such as support from one's
social network), physical capital (such as ownership of tools, or the
'means of production'), and symbolic capital (such as the worth of an
official title, status class, celebrity, etc.).

ECONOMIC MOBILITY




Economic mobility is the ability of an individual, family or some
other group to improve (or lower) their economic status—usually
measured in income. Economic mobility is often measured by movement
between income quintiles. Economic mobility may be considered a type
of social mobility, which is often measured in change in income.



Types


Mobility may be between generations ("inter-generational") or within a
person or groups lifetime ("intra-generational"). It may be "absolute"
or "relative".

Inter-generational mobility compares a person’s (or group's) income to
that of her/his/their parents. Intra-generational mobility, in contrast,
refers to movement up or down over the course of a working career.
Absolute mobility involves widespread economic growth[1] and answers the
question “To what extent do families improve their incomes over a
generation?” Relative mobility is specific to individuals or groups and
occurs without relation to the economy as a whole. It answers the question,
"how closely are the economic fortunes of children tied to that of their
parents?" Relative mobility is a zero-sum game, absolute is not.
