Research paper of Professor Sinha Roy has been accepted for publication

Project member Prof. Saikat Sinha Roy has recently published a paper titled "Structural change, services sector and intergenerational occupational mobility in India: Some exploratory evidence” together with Suparna Ganguly (Jadavpur University) in the South Asia Economic Journal.

The paper explores whether the structural shift of the Indian economy towards the services sector was accompanied by intergenerational occupational mobility of workers in India between 1999 and 2011 towards services and more skill-intensive occupations. The Altham measure of relative mobility is applied on an employment-unemployment survey database to measure the degree of association between occupational choice of fathers and co-resident sons in urban India. Upward mobility among sons is observed between 1999-2000 and 2011-2012.
