Brain Gains and Brain Drains: The Migration of Black and Nonblack Talent.
Watley, Donivan J.
This study provides migration trends for black and nonblack students who scored highest on the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT). The nonblack sample of 51,096 consisted of all those who had obtained an NMSQT score of 137 or above -- about 2 percent of all 11th graders obtain scores this high. The black sample of 8,162 included all who had obtained an NMSQT selection score of 90 or higher. Twelve geographical areas were used in studying the migration trends for nonblacks, while six were identified for Blacks. Migration was analyzed on the basis of place of birth versus place of testing. Migration trends were identified separately for students attending schools judged to be serving above average, average, or below average socioeconomic areas. (Author/AF)
