This report provides up-to-date evidence on the link between labour market

outcomes and educational attainment for the population of youth in low- and

middle-income countries. Based on the school-to-work transitions surveys

(SWTSs) run in 2012-2013, the report summarizes the education profile of

youth, identifies patterns of qualifications mismatch measured in over- and

undereducation and examines rates of return to education.
