Abstract

This article seeks to verify the mismatch between labor force educational attainment and occupational requirements by sex, age, region, economic sector, and occupation. Data are from the Brazilian National Household Survey (PNAD) for the years 1981 to 2001. We observe over-qualification in many occupations. Based on this finding, we propose an occupational taxonomy based on skill level required.
