RICARDI MORGAVI, Cesar Augusto. Patterns of social fluidity and class barriers in Mexico: Analysis of the inequality that affects young generation. Espiral (Guadalaj.) [online]. 2022, vol.29, n.84, pp.43-87.  Epub 17-Oct-2022. ISSN 1665-0565.

The goal of this article is to analyze the patterns of inequality that affect different birth cohorts in Mexico from the perspective of chances for social mobility. Based on a longitudinal cohort design, the changes and continuities in the intensity of the association between social class origins and destinations are analyzed, both without isolating (controlling) the structural effects of changes in the occupational structure (absolute mobility) and isolating them, in order to know the net chances for intergenerational social mobility (social fluidity). The analysis applies the comparative methodology of specific rates and loglinear models, based on the EGP class scheme. The results show that, despite given the improvements in income distribution inequality during the “hard-won decade”, the country was characterized by a social closure that reduced the net opportunities for social upward and downward mobility, but was accompanied by an increase in the permeability of certain class barriers by sex.

Palabras llave : class mobility; social fluidity; Mexico; log-linear models; hard-won decade.
