At a time of rising unemployment, there are growing concerns about the long-term impact of being out of work on people's lives. Research by Lindsey Macmillan examines the possibility of an even great threat: that the children of today's jobless might be in more danger of being without work themselves.
Following the intergenerational theme, Paul Gregg and Lindsey Macmillan explore the relationships between family income and education for cohorts of children born between the late 1950s and the early 1990s and ask how strongly are children's educational outcomes influences by their parents' incomes.
