Publication Abstract

Download PDF versionHermalin, Albert, and Lisa Neidert. 2015. "Homegrown or Imported: Sources of the College-Educated Population of States." PSC Research Report No. 15-849. 11 2015.

This analysis decomposes the college educated proportion of the population of each state to reveal the relative role of production and retention of the native born, in-migration from other states, and immigrants from abroad. States differ quite widely on these components and a state's recognition of its relative position can be helpful in developing the most effective policies. The results for each state are derived from an analysis of lifetime migration embedded in the American Community Survey (ACS) data for 2006-2010.
