This paper aims to examine determinants of education-job mismatch among youth in Kyrgyzstan. Analysis are based on the data School-to-Work Transition Survey (STWT) for 2013. Education-job mismatch is measured by the subjective and objective approach. Subjective approach is based on subjective self-reporting of youth whether their education match to their current employment requirements. Objective approach uses field of work according to the ISCO classification and then the required level of education for a certain position is compared to highest level of education. Determinants of education-job mismatch are identified according to objective measures. Bivariate discrete estimation technique is applied.
