Multidimensional Skill Mismatch

This measure is based on the discrepancy between the portfolio of skills required by an occupation and the portfolio of abilities possessed by a worker for learning those skills. This measure arises naturally in a ...

Any frictions inhibiting the ability of workers to switch occupations would be costly, particularly for young workers.
