Abstract [en]

This study examines the probabilities of attaining the highest level of education depending on parental education, and probabilities of reproducing parental education depending on parental separation. The theoretical starting point concerns social origin and social mobility. How parental separation affects educational reproduction among Swedish birth cohorts from 1905-1980 is investigated. Linear Probability Model (LPM) is used to analyze data from The Swedish Level of Living Survey (LNU). The results show that the probability of reproducing parental education is higher for those from intact families compared to those who experienced parental separation. However, the differences in probabilities between groups are small, and after controlling for a number of demographic traits, the correlation weakens. Furthermore, differences in the effect of parental separation for groups of different parental education is shown, although this is confounded by the educational expansion that took place in Sweden during the 20th century. The conclusion of this paper is that parental separation has a negative effect on the reproduction of parental education, and that the experience affects groups of different social origin differently.
