What can existing overeducation tell us about the situation in supply and demand of tertiary educate
The submitted article deals with the problem of overeducation. It offers a brief overview of existing explanations and introduces a method of overeducation measurement based on internationally used classifications ISCO and ISCED. It also brings some evidence on overeducation measured by this method, using data mostly from the National level census and European Community Household Panel. The analysis is focused on the overeducation of workers with tertiary degrees, which becomes especially interesting in the light of tertiary education expansion. The question is, in what sense does overeducation refer to the supplydemand relations on the labour market? International comparisons of overeducation in European countries offer some answers.Creation-Date: 2011-07
