Dr. Pfeffer’s research focuses on the transmission of socio-economic status across two or more generations in the United States and other industrialized countries. Recent projects have investigated the change in wealth inequality during the Great Recession, the relationship between parents’ wealth and their children’s educational and occupational outcomes (compared both across time and countries), and the transmission of inequality across multiple generations in the United States.
