520    To stimulate economic advancement, low- and middle-income 
       countries need well-educated and trained workforces to 
       fill the types of skilled jobs that drive economic growth.
       Improving educational quality and attainment and providing
       better training are all rightly put forth as policy 
       recommendations to leverage economic growth and job 
       creation. However, new findings based on large scale 
       surveys of adult skills from the World Bank Groups STEP 
       (Skills toward Employment and Productivity) Skills 
       Measurement Program suggest that many workers are 
       overqualified for their current jobs (based on the 
       education those jobs require). The results of this study 
       suggest that countries may not reap as much benefit from 
       their investments in quality education and training if 
       weak job creation leaves workers skills underutilized. 
       Most of the literature on mismatch focuses on higher-
       income countries and rates of over-education among college
       graduates. Accounting for Mismatch in Low- and Middle-
       Income Countries uses new STEP Skills Survey data from 12 
       low- and middle-income countries, representing a range of 
       economic and educational and training climates, to better 
       understand the scope and patterns of education and skills 
       mismatch. STEP collects information not only on workers 
       level of education and employment status, but also on the 
       types, frequency, and durations of tasks they carry out at
       their jobs as well as some of the cognitive skills they 
       use. The study also explores additional factors such as 
       gender, health, career stage, and participation in the 
       informal labor sector that may help explain the degree of 
       mismatch rates. The studys findings indicate that over-
       education is common in low and middle income countries 
       with both lower and higher rates of educational 
       attainment. There is also evidence that over-educated 
       tertiary workers do not use all of their skills, 
       potentially wasting valuable human capital and educational
       resources. Aimed at policy makers, business and education 
       leaders, and employers, Accounting for Mismatch in Low- 
       and Middle-Income Countries suggests that job growth must 
       go hand-in-hand with investments in education and 
       training.
