Abstract

The article concerns the return of education in Italy, assessed through labour market participation and occupation of people born in the cohort 1954–1958. The changes in time are analysed in the years 1993–2009, that is since the transition from school to work has been definitely ended (35–40 age group) until before retirement (50–55 age group). We will show that the relationship between education and employment is rather complex, varies over time and space, and features significant gender-based differences. In terms of employability and occupation, the advantage of a high level of education is relatively greater for those who occupy a more disadvantaged position in the labour market (women and those who live in the least dynamic areas of Italy).
