The intergenerational transmission of attitudes in neighborhoods

How do ideas and attitudes spread among people? From intergenerational transmission studies, and also from basic reasoning, we believe that children and parents are often very similar in how they behave and particularly what their attitudes are. Using a longitudinal household panel study (the GSOEP which started in 1984, with almost 30.000 respondents per year), I am going to add a neighborhood perspective on the intergenerational attitude approach to look for environmental effects. Hereby, I will concentrate on politically right-wing and xenophobic attitudes and their stability within different generations. This will lead to a closer understanding of intergenerational attitude transmission and the importance of environmental effects
