R amos R., S urinach J. and A rtís M. Regional economic growth and human capital: the role of over-education, Regional Studies . This article analyses the link between human capital and regional economic growth in the European Union. Using various indicators of human capital calculated from census microdata, it is concluded that the recent economic performance of European regions is associated with an increase in over-education. In fact, measures of educational mismatch seem to be more strongly connected to regional economic performance than do other traditional measures of human capital stock.
