Abstrakt

We provide within-country intergenerational income rank mobility estimates from Denmark. We find the highest intergenerational income mobility within middle-income rural municipalities and the lowest intergenerational income mobility within urban and poor rural municipalities. Relative mobility within Denmark is similar to relative mobility within Canada and less than within United States, while absolute rank mobility at the 25th and 75th parental income percentiles vary more in the United States than in Denmark. Within-country intergenerational mobility is positively correlated with the share of working-age employed and married inhabitants, and negatively with the share of single parents, teen births, non-western immigrants, and inhabitants outside the labor force.
