Economic value of human capital
This database, which accompanies the book “El valor económico del capital humano en España y sus regions” (The economic value of human capital in Spain and its regions), allows to expand on the limited information existing on this subject for Spain. The territorial analysis it provides on the value of human resources in Spain from 2000 to 2018 can serve as a useful complement to the already accurate picture offered by the series of capital stock in Spain and its regions on the process of non-human capital accumulation for over two decades and is a result of the collaboration between the BBVA Foundation and the Ivie.
The database is structured in four areas:
A1: Estimation of the economic value of human capital in current terms (millions of euros).
A2: Estimation of the economic value of human capital in constant terms (millions of euros in 2010).
A3: Estimate of the economic value of human capital per capita in current terms (euros per capita)
A4: Estimation of the economic value of human capital per capita in constant terms (2010 euros per capita).
To develop these series and to ensure they are consistent with National Accounts, a broad set of information on wages, job performance, demographic characteristics and educational patterns has been used differentiating for every region up to 1,360 different types of jobs.
