Título de la conferencia: “Occupational mobility across years, decades and a century”

In this paper I document occupational mobility of cohorts living one century apart: those captured in the Panel Study of Income Dynamics from 1968 to 2000 and a longitudinal census sample of individuals observed between 1880 and 1930. Considering different levels of aggregation with respect to occupations, as well as different definitions of what an occupation is, I uncover several facts which are remarkably stable in time: (i) occupational mobility is higher for younger workers, (ii) it is closely related to geographical mobility and (iii) over the life-cycle, individuals tend towards occupations with high cognitive, non-routine task requirements and away from manual-heavy tasks. These mobility facts contribute to the debate regarding the evolution of inequality, both across time and over the life-cycle and to the identification of frictions in labor markets, using a structural model of occupational mobility embedded in a growth model with structural transformation forces.
