Simonová, Natalie. 2002. The Influence of Family Origin on the Evolution of Educational Inequalities in the Czech Republic after 1989. Sociological Papers 02:2. Praha: Sociologický ústav AV ČR. 36 s. ISBN 80-7330-012-5.

This paper analysed the hypothesis of the growing influence of family (social) origin on success in the transition between secondary and post-secondary school in the 1990s. The family origin of the respondent was indicated through the father's education and his socio-economic status. With the use of the method of logistic regression the hypothesis of the growing influence of social origin was not confirmed. On the contrary, trends since 1989 testify to decreasing inequality in access to education.
