Modern econometric approaches for the study of structural educational mismatch
Languages of publication
Oszacowano wpływ liczby studentów studiujących na poszczególnych kierunkach na poziom płac w Polsce. Ustalono, że każdy z kierunków ─ humanistyczny, ekonomiczny, techniczny czy nauk ścisłych ─ powoduje wzrost płac na poziomie makroekonomicznym, ale efekt ten jest najmniejszy dla studiów ekonomicznych, co może być skutkiem zbyt wysokiego zainteresowania edukacją tego typu. Wyniki uzyskane dla studiów technicznych mogą świadczyć o nadwyżce popytu na inżynierów na rynku pracy w stosunku do ich podaży z systemu edukacji wyższej.
The wage effects of student numbers on particular fields of study in Poland are analyzed. It is found that any of the fields of study, i.e. humanitarian, business and economics, technical or natural sciences, contributes to an increase in wages on the macroeconomic level, but the whole effect is smaller for studies in economics, which could be an outcome of too high interest in that kind of education. On the other side, our results for technical studies could be viewed as an argument in favor of an excess labor market demand for engineers compared to their supply by the educational system.
