Deirdre Bloome

Assistant Professor of Sociology, University of Michigan

Bloome will study the effects of rising inequality in the U.S. on intergenerational income persistence, or the extent to which children’s economic outcomes in adulthood resemble those of their parents. Using several panel data sets, she will explore the extent to which factors such as education-related wage disparities, childhood family structure, and public policies shape these intergenerational relationships and develop a model that predicts future economic mobility trends.
