Pathways to Adjustment in Science and Engineering Labor Markets

a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   John Bound

This research uses economic models and available data from multiple sources to identify the channels of adjustment that determine the flows of individuals from overseas and from within the U.S. into America’s science and engineering (S&E) workforce. In particular, it examines the link between the labor market and university education for both U.S.-born and foreign-born workers, looking at the impact of the decisions made by U.S. students regarding education in S&E fields, the supply side of U.S. colleges and universities, the expansion of post-secondary training abroad, and U.S. immigration policy – including the availability of student visas and work visas, and the prospects for transitioning to permanent residency.

Funding Period: 01/01/2012 to 09/01/2015

Country of Focus: USA
