Abstract

In this article, we analyze the job-matching quality of people with disabilities. We do not find evidence of a higher importance of over- education in this group in comparison to the rest of the population. The main results are the following: people with disabilities have a lower probability of being over-educated for 3 or more years, a higher probability of leaving mismatch in a broad sense or merely over- education towards inactivity or marginal employment, a lower probability of leaving mismatch in a broad sense towards a better match, and a higher probability of employment mobility towards inactivity or marginal employment. These results are probably linked to the relatively low investment in education of this disadvantaged group. The empirical analysis is based on Spanish data from the European Community Household Panel from 1995 to 2000.
