The social mobility index sets out the differences between where children grow up and the chances they have of doing well in adult life.
The report compares the chances for children from poorer backgrounds:
- doing well at school
- finding a good job
- having a decent standard of living
The methodology report:
- explains which data was used
- defines social mobility and disadvantage
- explains how to understand and use the data spreadsheet
The data spreadsheet shows the social mobility index by local authority.
