Higher Education and High Skill Labor Markets

a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   John Bound

This project examines the connection between the enrollment of foreign students in US higher education and the corresponding impacts on the labor market. The research questions that are the focus of this project include: i) what is the link between degree production and labor market outcomes in the specific field of computer science, ii) given the dramatic increase in the participation of foreign students in U.S. higher education, what determines decisions to persist in the U.S. labor market and associated employment outcomes, and iii) what are the effects on native students of increased foreign. Our empirical work will utilize a range of survey data sets including the American Community Survey, the CPS and the National Survey of College Graduates, as well as a large administrative data set from the Department of Homeland Security on F-visa recipients. (obtained by FOIA).

Funding Period: 08/01/2016 to 10/31/2017
