Emsi is proud to announce the release of our latest research: How Your School Affects Where You Live.
In a follow-up to the report we worked on earlier this year with The Wall Street Journal, we looked at where graduates move after college. And this time, we also analyzed how the type of school you attend affects where you’ll live after you graduate.
This information is useful for just about everyone. Students and their families deciding which school to attend. Colleges and universities looking to understand their impact and reach. Communities and employers evaluating the talent moving in and out of their regions.
Considering how tight the labor market is right now, it’s crucial that everyone understands the relationship between school type and where graduates live. Brain drain is a very real problem for a lot of states, which is why we also looked at which states do the best (and worst) jobs of retaining their college talent. How can we learn from them?
And finally, we also built a free interactive database so you can explore migration data for your own school. You’ll find it at the bottom of the report webpage.
As always, if you have any questions about Emsi, our data, or this report, please reach out! We are happy to help.
