Which professional status have young adults in Switzerland attained at the average age of 26, ten years After having completed compulsory school? Which factors influence status attainment, and how do young adults perceive their own status in terms of future status mobility and in comparison to their parents’ status? This contribution’s analyses on the basis of longitudinal data collected by the Swiss TREE panel survey (Transitions from Education to Employment) show that up to the age of 26, many young adults have already attained their parents’ professional status and expect it to further increase. All other things being equal, ascriptive characteristics such as gender, social origin and migration background have a significant influence on status attainment across the entire education pathway observed. This indicates a relatively high degree of intergenerational status transfer, compromising the importance of meritocratic factors with regard to status attainment.
