The Social Mobility Commission has a duty to promote social mobility in England and provides an independent scrutiny and advocacy role on social mobility in England. The Commission is required to publish an annual report assessing progress on improving social mobility in the United Kingdom – this is the annual “State of the Nation” report.
The State of the Nation 2016: Social Mobility in Great Britain warned that “Britain has a deep social mobility problem which is getting worse for an entire generation of young people”.
As well as noting differences between income groups, it highlighted differences between age cohorts and widening geographical divides.
