Abstract: In this paper we analyze the job-matching quality of people with disabilities. We do not find evidence of a greater importance of over-education in this group in comparison to the rest of the population. We find that people with disabilities have a lower probability of being over-educated for a period of 3 or more years, a higher probability of leaving mismatch towards inactivity or marginal employment, a lower probability of leaving mismatch towards a better match, and a higher probability of employment mobility towards inactivity or marginal employment. The empirical analysis is based on Spanish data from the European Community Household Panel from 1995 to 2000.
