Assistant Research Scientist, Survey Research Center, Institute for Social Research
Pablo Mitnik is Assistant Research Scientist at the Stone Center for Inequality Dynamics. His research focuses on intergenerational mobility, economic inequality, labor markets, and statistical methods. A large part of his recent work has aimed at improving the methodological approaches, statistical models, and data used to measure mobility and inequality of opportunity. His empirical research relies widely on tax and other administrative data. Current projects involve the study of wealth inequality and the transmission of wealth across generations, the policy and institutional determinants of intergenerational mobility, and the methodological and conceptual foundations of research in mobility and inequality of opportunity.
