Educational Mismatch and Self-Employment
Bender, Keith A.; Roche, Kristen
Economics of Education Review, v34 p85-95 Jun 2013
Previous research on educational mismatch concentrates on estimating its labor market consequences but with a focus on wage and salary workers. This paper examines the far less studied influence of mismatch on the self-employed. Using a sample of workers in science and engineering fields, results show larger earnings penalties for mismatch among the self-employed but no diminution in job satisfaction. Moreover, the reasons for mismatch among the self-employed differ dramatically by gender. (Contains 10 tables.)
