Geographic Mobility of Postsecondary Occupational Education Graduates. Phase II.
Winter, Gene M.; Fadale, LaVerna M.
This report of the second phase of a study of the geographic mobility patterns of postsecondary occupational education graduates in New York State provides a further examination of reasons for the mobility of program completers, verifies the general magnitude of the identified mobility trends, and examines the occupational status of program leavers. Part I introduces the project; provides information on the methods and findings of Phase I of the research project; and outlines the intended outcomes of Phase II. Each of the next three sections describes the background, methodology, data results, and implications of Phase II's three major research components. Part II looks at the demographic and academic characteristics of students in good academic standing who left their college program before completion, their reasons for entrance and exit, their assessment of their college experience, their employment characteristics, and the relationships found among selected variables. Part III provides follow-up data on 1981 program graduates exhibiting outward mobility patterns, including a description of survey respondents, their earnings and work history, their residence and mobility as students, and their reasons for accepting their positions. Part IV provides information on the geographic mobility of 1983 program graduates, including placement data by major technology and program. Part V offers a summary and conclusions. The survey instruments are appended. (HB)
