Migration of College and University Students in the United States.
Gossman, Charles S.; And Others
The 2 objectives of this study are to provide answers and guidelines to problems faced by educational administrators, planners, and government officials; and to contribute to existing scientific knowledge concerning human migration. The basic data in the study were derived from a survey of migration of college students conducted in 1963 by the USOE in cooperation with the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. The first of this study's 2 major parts identifies and analyzes, on state and regional levels, the migration patterns of 6 categories of students. The second part constitutes an analysis of the social, economic, demographic and educational factors related to student migration. All institutions of higher education in the US and outlying areas whose programs are wholly or principally creditable toward a bachelor's or higher degree are included in the survey. There are 12 chapters: 1 and 2 are introductory in nature; 3 through 8 discuss student migration patterns in accordance with enrollment categories and types of institutions; 9 analyzes historical trends of student migration (1938-1963); 10 represents a factor analysis of pertinent variables identified with the migration process; 11 and 12 deal with a regression analysis of migration in relation to educational, economic and demographic factors. The findings of the study are illustrated in 54 figures and 61 tables. (WM)
