Description
  • Abstract

    Using high-quality Swedish administrative data, we document a strong secular increase in the return to non-cognitive skill during 1992-2013. Over this time period, the return to non-cognitive ability roughly doubled. Meanwhile, the return to cognitive skill was stable; the return increased somewhat in the 1990s but then fell in the 2000s. The increase in the return to non-cognitive ability was particularly pronounced at the upper-end of the wage distribution and workers with an abundance of non-cognitive skill were increasingly sorted into high-paying occupations. We also present suggestive evidence that offshoring increases the demand for non-cognitive skill relative to cognitive skill.
