Ce travail s’est fixé pour objectif de proposer des outils d’analyse économique permettant d’appréhender l’inadéquation formation-emploi et de mettre en évidence le lien avec le chômage. En se plaçant dans un cadre de maximisation du profit sous contrainte d’inadéquation formation-emploi, ce travail a mis en évidence des indicateurs de mesure de l’inadéquation formation-emploi, ainsi que de son impact sur le chômage. Aussi, ce travail a montré que toutes les situations d’inadéquation de la formation et l’emploi ne sont pas sources de chômage. En-dessous d’un certain seuil, l’inadéquation de la formation et l’emploi induit un surplus de création d’emplois au profit des travailleurs peu qualifiés. This work aims at proposing economic analysis tools to understand the training-employment mismatch, while highlighting its link with unemployment. Building upon a profit-maximizing framework under mismatch constraint, this work has highlighted indicators to measure the training-employment mismatch and its impact on unemployment. Also, this work has shown that all situations of training-employment mismatch are not sources of unemployment. Below a certain threshold, the training-employment mismatch induces a surplus of job creation for the benefit of low-skilled workers.(Full text in french)
