Computers and the Demand for Skilled Labour: Industry and Establishment-Level Panel Evidence for the UK


  • J.E. Haskel
  • Y. Heden


The authors use two U.K. panel data sets to investigate skill-upgrading in the United Kingdom and how it has been affected by computerization. Census data reveals that most aggregate skill-upgrading is explained by within-establishment rises in skill composition. Such upgrading is significantly related to computerization, a relation that is robust to different worker and computer types, endogeneity, human capital upgrading, and other technology measures.
