Abstract

We develop and use a statistically-derived unit group indicator of graduate jobs, based on job skill requirements. The indicator performs better than existing indicators in validation tests. Applied to the British graduate labour market between 1997/2001 and 2006/2012, we find that the share of graduate jobs in Britain rose from 32% to 40%. For men the wage premium for matched graduates relative to matched non-graduates increased from 84% to 102%, while for women it remained stable. The prevalence of graduate overeducation was stable at around 30%, but the wage gap between matched and mismatched graduates increased from 46% to 65%. Only a small proportion of mismatched graduates in 2012 progressed to graduate jobs by 2014.
