''The dynamics of the Brazilian income''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.2 )
 
 
This paper aims to measure the degree of income mobility in Brazil in the 1987-2005 period. To achieve that, we consider the axiomatic mobility approach and the dynamic tool suggested by Aebi et al. (1999). The transition probability matrix calculations and the mobility index indicate that Brazil has low intragenerational income mobility, suggesting that Brazilian social structure is relatively rigid.
