This paper examines the impact of the growing proportion of graduates in the Scottish labour force that is implied by the current participation rate and demographic change. While the detailed results vary with alternative assumptions about the extent to which wage premia reflect productivity, they do suggest that the long-term supply-side impacts of higher education institutions (HEIs) provide a significant boost to regional GDP. Furthermore, the results suggest that the supply-side impacts of HEIs are likely to be more important than the expenditure impacts that are the focus of most HEI impact studies
