Social mobility is one of the important determinants in the analysis of class situation. Various surveys are carried out by different agencies to find out the nature and trends of social mobility. The surveys are conducted with focus on both intra-generational as well as inter-generational mobility of the Nepali people in terms of educational basis, occupational basis and also on the basis of caste, ethnicity, and gender.

One such survey conducted in the year 2014 revealed that in regard to education, Nepali people today are better educated than their parents. Likewise, in case of occupations, about 43 percent of Nepali people are expected to be in better occupations than their fathers while 47 percent is likely to remain in the same occupation as their fathers. On the basic of caste and ethnic dimensions, the hill Brahmins and Chhetris followed by Newars fall under the group that have surpassed their fathers’ education and occupational status. However, in case of some categories, namely Terai Brahmins, Muslims and Dalits, such mobility was found to be very insignificant.

Similarly, it was indicated that the persons who were born in rural areas but who have managed to move to urban areas have better educational and occupational status compared to those counterparts form the sane generation who continued to live in their rural birthplace. Likewise, the study also portrays that large numbers of people from lower class categories in their younger age have suffered some episodes of poverty in their life time, have been able to escape extreme poverty; upgrading the economic status to middle class. However, the scholars are also of the opinion that this group is the most vulnerable ones who are likely to tall back to their poor status.
