Abstract

A < sc > bstract Almost all the contributions on human capital and migration have focused on individuals who recently completed a tertiary education degree. Not much has been done with regard to high-school leavers. However, studying the migration of high-school leavers (college-bound individuals) is at least as important as studying college graduates' migration. We present an analysis of college-bound individuals' migration patterns for the USA. We argue that understanding the main determinants of these migration patterns is fundamental for policy makers in their 'quest for human capital retention'.
