Abstract

Benefits from agglomeration economies are not uniform across a local labour market, but in fact exhibit significant heterogeneity along the dimension of occupational skills. We build on recent attempts to explore this notion by conducting a skill-based sub-sample analysis of the urban wage premium. We find that occupational skill profiles oriented towards analytical skills enjoy the highest urban wage premium, while those oriented towards physical and collaboration skills do not seem to enjoy any substantial urban wage premium.
