Abstract
This research aims to give a thorough look at the incidence, and evolution of occupational mismatch in the Spanish labor market from the 1990s till 2013. This is done by examining which parts of the labor market have been exhibiting this feature, and what the odds are of being mismatched, given individual characteristics. Two, large micro-data surveys were used; the Wage Structure Survey (WSS) and the Economically Active Population Survey (EAPS). Additionally, information from the WSS was used to analyze the effect of over/undereducation on earnings. The results indicate that the Spanish labor market suffers from mismatch in its lowest and highest educated individuals (polarization), and that overeducation appears to be more of a permanent...
