We apply transition probabilities and multinomial logit models to analyze household class mobility in a Philippine village. We find that better access to land facilitates accumulation in agriculture. Schooling has positive effects on upward mobility in both agriculture and non-agricultural sectors. Macroeconomic growth has positive effects on upward mobility in non-agricultural sector, and its quantitative effects are large relative to those of household characteristics. We find little indication of farm households being responsive to prices or non-agricultural opportunities. The life-cycle stages have significant effects. A larger number of children have positive effects on accumulation among lower strata but negative effects among upper strata.
