Study Abroad and the Migration of Human Resources.
Myers, Robert G.
Emphasis in this study is on improving concepts and theory in the area of the nonreturn of foreign students after study in the United States. Part 1 examines definitions and measurements currently used. The volume and correlates of nonreturn identified from a census by the Institute of International Education are analyzed and cross-national comparisons of intended nonreturn are presented. Part 2 sets study abroad and nonreturn in the contexts of evaluating functional investment alternatives and of human resource migration in terms of a relevant concept of migration and of private and social decision-making models for analyzing educational opportunities and related migration. Part 3 is a case study of Peruvian students. Main variables include age, sex, field of study, socioeconomic status, sponsorship, type of visa, time spent in the United States, and expected earnings. (The document includes 73 tables, five figures, and numerous references.) (author/ly)
