At a time when the younger generations are massively gaining access to the baccalaureate and higher education, what influence do social origins have on educational and career paths? This Céreq Bref provides some answers, based on observations made in 2020 of the trajectories of young people who had left training three years earlier. It shows that the social inequalities observed at the time of entry into the labour market can primarily be explained by the decisive effect of social origin with regard to the level of educational qualifications obtained. However, this effect persists on the chances of achieving managerial status.
