I begin by presenting the overall transition matrix of educational mobility. Table 3 represents a transition matrix across five categories of educational attainment, including less than primary, primary, junior secondary, high school, and tertiary education. The rows represent children's schooling and the columns correspond to parent's education. Each column sums to 100%.

Table 3:

Notes: The five categories of educational attainment are less than primary (1), primary (2), junior secondary (3), high school (4), and tertiary (5). Each cell reports the percentage of children with educational attainment (row), conditional on parent's educational attainment (column).
