THE SHEEPSKIN EFFECTS EVOLUTION FROM 1982 TO 2002 IN BRAZIL: THE ROLES OF LABOR SUPPLY AND DEMAND CHANGES
This paper seeks to analyze the evolution of the sheepskin effect on the Brazilian labor Market form 1982 and 2002. Since the structure of the Brazilian economy changed substantially during this period - as the supply of more educated workers increased and the technological progress required the demand of more skilled workers - it is expected to observe some changes on the sheepskin effect over time. This paper explores the differences in the economic structure between the Southeast and Northeast regions in Brazil and the fact that changes in the education level had been similar for both level of education of worker increased in order to analyze how changes on the labor demand and supply influenced the sheepskin effect. The results show that despite the reduction of this effect over time, changes were smaller for the higher level degrees. The same happens for the Southeast in comparison with the Northeast, as the first region is characterized by higher economic development, and probably with a higher demand for skilled workers.
