Overqualification. The estimates in Table 1 indicate that about one in five full time workers in the United States was overqualified in the years from 1993 to 2002. This percentage represented an increase from previous years and was about twice as large as in the years from 1972 to 1982. Women were slightly less likely than men to be overqualified, though the gender gap in overqualification has appeared to narrow slightly during the 30 year period from 1972 to 2002. Non whites were more apt to be overqualified for their jobs than whites in each of the three periods. Younger workers were more likely to be overqualifiedthan older workers in the years from 1972 to 1992, though this age gap had virtually disappeared in the most recent period. College educated workers were more likely to be overqualified than workers with less education, as we would expect. More than half of workers with more than a college education were overqualified in the period 1993 to 2002, which represents a maeked increase from earlier years.

    估計在表1表明那大约一个在五名全時工作者在美國在從1993年的岁月被過分了限制到2002年。 這百分比代表了從往年的增量并且在從1972年的岁月兩次是大象到1982年。 婦女比人有一點很少可能被過分限制,雖然在overqualification的性别差距看上去有一點變窄在從1972年的30年期間到2002年。 非白色比白色易于為他們的工作被過分限制在三個期間中的每一個。 年轻工人是可能是overqualifiedthan更老的工作者在從1972年的岁月到1992年,雖然這年龄差距在最近期間實際上消失了。 因为我們會期望,受過大學教育的工作者比有较少教育的工作者是可能被過分限制。 更多比一半有更多的工作者比大学教育在期間被過分了限制1993年到2002年,代表從早期的maeked增量。
