Children’s chances of doing well at school, going to university, getting a good job and owning a house are strongly influenced by their parents’ education, occupation and home ownership – but what about the impact of where they grow up? Brian Bell, Jack Blundell and Stephen Machin explore the geography of intergenerational mobility in England and Wales.
