Abstract: This paper reports evidence on relative demand shifts for different educational groups of the workforce within the private sector in Denmark over the period 1980-98. It is shown that (i) the demand for more educated labour accelerated substantially during the 1980s and slowed in the 1990s; (ii) the relative demand for educated labour increased monotonically with the length of the course of education; (iii) within higher education groups, demand for labour with specialties in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences increased by relatively more than that for labour with technical training; and (iv) the relative demand shifts for educated labour have contributed to output growth in the order of at least 15 percent over the period 1980-98.
