Overeducation and Wages in Europe: Evidence from Quantile Regression

Contents:

Author Info

Abstract

La literatura existente ha asumido que el efecto de la sobre-educación es constante a lo largo de la distribución condicional de salarios. En este artículo usamos la regresión cuantílica con datos de 12 países europeos para mostrar que las diferencias entre los segmentos de la distribución de los hechos son grandes. Sobretodo, analizamos hasta qué punto la sobre-educación está relacionada con la falta de habilidades.
