Abstract

The study aims to analyse the relation between human capital, growth and brain drain in 77 countries. These variables are also affected by numerous other variables. This study researches human capital, growth, migration, their determinant variables and the interlink ages between them. Models constructed for these purposes are tested by panel data analysis for the period 1990 – 2001.
