Cet article estime l’effet des restructurations industrielles sur le niveau de diplôme acquis par les jeunes générations sur la période 1956-1993 en France. Nous mobilisons les données issues de l’enquête Formation et Qualification Professionnelle 2003 et de plusieurs vagues d’enquêtes de recensement de la population. Nous estimons économétriquement une fonction de production de capital humain. Nous montrons que les restructurations industrielles exercent un effet négatif sur le niveau de diplôme acquis par les enfants d’ouvriers. This article evaluates the effect of industrial restructuring on the level of diploma acquired by young generation on 1956-1993 in France. We use data from the French Training and Occupational Skills (FQP) survey and from several waves from the French Population Census. We econometrically estimate a human capital production function. We show that industrial restructuring has a negative impact on the level of diploma acquired by the children of blue-collar workers.
