Chapter 10: Effects of human capital on technology intensity in the OECD manufacturing sector
This chapter examines the effect of human capital on technology intensity in the manufacturing sector among OECD countries. It explores the heterogeneous effect of educational attainment by education level. Using OECD data, it does not find a significant impact of human capital on technology intensity in the manufacturing sector. Both improvement and the initial level of human capital seem to have a limited effect on the share regarding value-added and employment of technology intensive industries among the entire manufacturing sector.
