We estimate intergenerational wealth rank correlation across four generations, finding parent-child correlations of 0.3-0.4, and grandparent-grandchild correlations of 0.1-0.2. Inheritances account for at least half of the association.
The Economic Journal

We estimate intergenerational transmission coefficients using several outcome measures for wide definitions of the extended family. Traditional parent-child estimates miss about half of the persistence across generations estimated by the extended model.

We document a pattern of job polarization in Sweden between 1975 and 2005, with growth in high- and low-wage jobs compared to middle-wage jobs. Changes after 1990 are consistent with task-biased technological change.
