Creating Symmetrical Mobility Before general conclusions are drawn about the applicability of conventional mobility analysis, it is necessary to take this analysis one stage further—in order to assess the extent of ‘relative’ social mobility. By creating a symmetrical mobility table, it has been argued, it is possible to demonstrate how much occupational mobility would have taken place had there not been substantial changes in the occupational structure (Heath, 1981; Goldthorpe, 1980). 1) and multiplying out the frequencies (see Heath 1981, Appendix 1).

She then demonstrates that educational qualification is an important factor in female intragenerational mobility after entry to the labour market. Thirteen per cent of the daughters of middle-class fathers who had a manual job were countermobile. Of this 13 per cent, some two-thirds had, in fact, been educated beyond the age of 18. This compares with the 19 per cent of middle-class sons who experienced downward mobility on entry to the labour market, 8 per cent reaching middle-class occupations via education and work routes, and 11 per cent by work routes alone.

The implied outcome of the examination by Goldthorpe and Llewellyn was that ‘closure’, ‘buffer-zone’ and ‘counterbalance’ are not useful models for all mobility, whether by men or women. It is for this reason that the present chapter is called ‘Three Theses Re-examined’. , Giddens, 1973; Bottomore, 1964; Miliband, 1969), which argued that those who occupy ‘superior’ positions in the class hierarchy may be presumed to be motivated to retain these positions for themselves and to pass them on to their children, and that they have command of the necessary resources to do so.
