Abstract

This article make an analysis of the demand for workers with higher education in Brazilian metropolitan regions. The results of this study show that the demand for more skilled labor has increased in recent years and that despite this information we can not say that these individuals are being employed in occupations compatible with their schooling. Thus, there is a mismatch between the technical qualifications required and observed. To view this data was applied a model Probit with selection bias, which shows the probability of a worker being in a situation of underemployment. In general, it appears that this problem affects more women, non-white individuals and those not unionized. Moreover, it has been that workers with early entry into the labor market are penalized with this situation, because it is believed that they invest less in education than those who enter this market with greater age.
