Going Away to College and Wider Urban Job Opportunities Take Highly Educated Youth Away from Rural Areas.
Gibbs, Robert M.
Rural Development Perspectives, v10 n3 p35-44 Jun 1995
Rural high school graduates are less likely to graduate from college than their urban counterparts, mostly because they are less likely to attend college. Half of rural college attendees leave home and do not return by age 25. Those that do return are drawn largely by home ties and intervening life choices rather than local job opportunities.
