Mobility Report Cards: The Role of Colleges in Intergenerational Mobility

Which colleges in America contribute the most to helping children climb the income ladder? How can we increase access to such colleges for children from low income families? We take a step toward answering these questions by constructing publicly available mobility report cards – statistics on students’ earnings in their early thirties and their parents’ incomes – for each college. We estimate these statistics using de-identified data from the federal government covering all students from 1999-2013, building on the Dept. of Education’s College Scorecard.
