Modestino, Alicia Sasser
Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
This policy brief presents some basic facts about the retention of recent college graduates and changes in retention over time, updating an earlier report on this topic. It shows, for example, how New England compares with other Census divisions, what factors affect its ability to retain graduates, and the reasons why recent college graduates choose to leave New England. These findings can help policymakers, business leaders, and college officials weigh the effectiveness of policy options and collective actions aimed at retaining recent college graduates. [This brief updates the findings from an earlier report NEPPC research report 08-1: "The Future of the Skilled Labor Force in New England: The Supply of Recent College Graduates," by Alicia C. Sasser.]
