The U. S. College Graduate

Chapter 8
Residential Geography of the Graduate Bloc

As already observed (page 18), the colleges and universities in each section of the country are turning out their approximate per capita shares of men and women graduates, although New England educates a proportion of them that is somewhat larger than the ratio of New England's population to the whole U. S. population. But the educated probably have a greater mobility than the run of Americans, presumably because they are more prosperous and because many of them are in lines of work which may call upon them to change their residence to parts of the country of which they are not native. In any case, the distribution of college graduates according to where they actually now live is not at all even for the nation, as follows:

Thus graduates of both sexes seem markedly inclined to seek their opportunities and settle down in the greatest numbers on either coast of the country -- in New England and the Middle Atlantic States, and on the Pacific Coast. The southern and central sections educate their own shares, but do not keep them so much at home. How the migration of college graduates from the section in which they were educated works is shown by the following cross-tabulation:
