    A tanulmányban a túl-, illetve az alulképzés keresetekre gyakorolt hatását vizsgáltuk a magyar munkaerőpiacon az 1994 és 2002 közötti időszakban. Az iskolai végzettséget az elvégzett osztályok számával, az adott foglalkozás gyakorlásához szükséges iskolai végzettséget a foglalkozások modális iskolai végzettségével, a túl-, illetve az alulképzést a szükséges iskolai végzettséghez képest hiányzó, illetve többletosztályokkal közelítettük. Azt találtuk, hogy a szükséges és a többletosztályok bérhozama minden időpontban pozitív, továbbá a többletosztályok bérhozama két év kivételével alacsonyabb, mint a szükséges osztályoké, végül negatív, de a szükséges osztályok bérhozamánál abszolút értékben kisebb bérhozamot láttunk a hiányzó osztályok esetében. Ez azt jelenti, hogy 1. adott iskolai végzettség mellett (többnyire) az éppen szükséges iskolai végzettségű munkavállalók keresete a legmagasabb, 2. a túlképzett munkavállalók keresete (többnyire) alacsonyabb, mint az ugyanolyan iskolai végzettségű, de az iskolai végzettségüknek éppen megfelelő munkahelyen dolgozó munkavállalóké, ugyanakkor magasabb, mint a hasonló munkakörökben dolgozó, a munkakör követelményeinek éppen megfelelő, tehát náluk alacsonyabb iskolai végzettségű munkavállalóké, 3. az alulképzett munkavállalók keresete alacsonyabb, mint a hasonló munkakörökben dolgozó, a munkakör ellátásához éppen szükséges (magasabb) iskolai végzettséggel rendelkező munkavállalóké, de magasabb, mint az azonos iskolai végzettségű, az iskolai végzettségüknek éppen megfelelő munkakörökben dolgozóké. A vizsgált időszakban a túlképzett munkavállalók aránya 11 százalékról 24 százalékra nőtt. Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) kód: I20, J24, J41.
