Social mobility in the UK: state of the nation 2017 report
The fifth annual 'State of the nation' report from the Social Mobility Commission.
This report assesses the progress that Great Britain has made towards improving social mobility.
It puts the social mobility index at the heart of the report and ranks all English local authorities into hotspots and coldspots, using a range of 16 indicators for every life stage from the early years through to working lives.
It finds that there is a stark social mobility geographical divide within our nation.
A similar but not comparative approach is taken for Scotland and Wales.
