Heterogeneity in economic structures between different countries or regions has been examined by economists for a long time. Much of the literature has focused on explaining (and quantifying) interregional differences in production and income. However, little attention is focused on explaining and quantifying differences in occupational and educational compositions of the workforce across regions. This is the gap this paper tries to fill by analyzing regional occupational and educational structures in the Netherlands.
