Social Stratification

Description

How do characteristics such as social background, ethnicity, gender and sexual identity affect persons' opportunities in life? Research within this line has the objective to document differences in socioeconomic and family outcomes and to understand the unequal obstacles that society poses toward achieving these goals for different social groups. Examples of outcomes of interest are education, income, and wealth but also family dynamics such as partnering, parenting, and separation.
