This paper examines the effect of international mobility on the education-job mismatch and skill-mismatch of PhD graduates after controlling for self-selection into cross-border mobility. Using individual-level data from two waves of surveys of PhD recipients in Italy conducted by the Italian National Institute of Statistics, we find that migration to foreign countries reduces significantly the risk of overeducation and overskilling. These results remain robust to different empirical methodologies and subsamples.

Abstract

This paper examines the effect of international mobility on the education-job mismatch and skill-mismatch of PhD graduates after controlling for self-selection into cross-border mobility. Using individual-level data from two waves of surveys of PhD recipients in Italy conducted by the Italian National Institute of Statistics, we find that migration to foreign countries reduces significantly the risk of overeducation and overskilling. These results remain robust to different empirical methodologies and subsamples.
