A profile of the French middle classes (2010)

The French middle classes feel forgotten by government policy and are afraid of descending the social hierarchy. The Fondation pour l’innovation politique has devised a large-scale survey to gain a better understanding of people in the “intermediate categories” in France who are supposed to ensure a society’s economic dynamism and political equilibrium.
