CANTERO M, Violeta and WILLIAMSON C, Guillermo. MOVILIDAD SOCIAL INTERGENERACIONAL POR ORIGEN ÉTNICO: EVIDENCIA EMPÍRICA REGIÓN DE LA ARAUCANÍA, CHILE. Universum [online]. 2009, vol.24, n.1, pp. 22-40. ISSN 0718-2376. doi: 10.4067/S0718-23762009000100003.
The study shows that Araucania Region has a significant social intergenerational rate of mobility, related to higher educational achievements on younger generations. On the ethnics' issue, it shows that mapuche individuals have less social mobility than non-mapuche people, where mapuches have short distance or horizontal mobility. On the social structure, it also demonstrates an important transformation process, with fewer agriculture related jobs and wider more socially accepted urban positions.
