Abstract

This article evaluates the effect of French industrial restructuring on individual human capital accumulation during 1956-1993. We use data from the French Training and Occupational Skills survey and the Population Census (INSEE). We estimate a function of human capital accumulation using two econometric strategies (controlling for covariates; instrumental variables). We show that industrial restructuring has a negative impact on individual human capital accumulation for the children of blue-collar workers.
