Fabian T. Pfeffer"I used the Freedman Fund award to support a two week research stay at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) to expand a cross-national comparative research on the relationship between parents\' wealth and their children\'s status outcomes to Sweden and to an exciting new type of data source, namely population-level registry data on wealth based on tax records. The registry data accessible at SOFI turned out to be such an impressive collection of data that it will sustain a long-term collaboration that engages in the study of many different aspects around the issue of wealth and opportunities for years to come. This first research trip was a great way to jumpstart this collaboration and has already lead to a first manuscript comparing the degree of wealth inequality in educational and occupational opportunities in the United States, Sweden, and Germany."
