Overeducation in the Labor Market: A Meta-Analysis.
Groot, Wim; Maassen van den Brink, Henriette
Economics of Education Review, v19 n2 p149-158 Apr 2000
A meta-analysis of studies on overeducation and undereducation in the labor market reveals that of the four different definitions of overeducation distinguished in the literature, only the one based on variation in years of education within occupational groups appears to yield significantly lower-than-average rates of overeducation. (Contains 4 tables and 32 references.) (MLH)
