Abstract

Abstract Considerable attention in the literature has been devoted to spatial mobility as a mechanism in the transition from study to work. In this paper, the relationships between migration and both regional economic circumstances and individual characteristics are investigated using a micro-dataset on Dutch college and university graduates. Over the last decade, some Dutch regions have retained increasingly higher proportions of college graduates. We find that the presence of a large labour market is the most important structural economic determinant for these higher retention rates. Cyclical determinants appear to affect university graduate migration more than college graduate migration. Une analyse des tendances dans la mobilité spatiale de diplômés de l'éducation supérieure aux Pays-BasRéumé Différentes publications se sont consacrées dans une grande mesure à la mobilité spatiale, en tant que mécanisme pour la transition de l’étude à la pratique. Dans la présente communication, on se penche sur les rapports entre d'une part la migration, d'autre part des circonstances économiques régionales ainsi que des caractéristiques individuelles, en appliquant un micro fichier sur des diplômés de collèges et universités des Pays-Bas. Au cours des dix dernières années, certaines régions des Pays-Bas ont retenu une proportion toujours plus élevée de diplômés de collèges. Nous avons établi que la présence d'un important marché du travail est l’élément économique structurel le plus déterminant pour justifier ces taux de rétention élevés. Des déterminants cycliques semblent affecter la migration de titulaires de diplômes universitaires plus qu'ils n'affectent la migration de diplômés de collèges. Análisis de las tendencias de movilidad espacial de los egresados del sistema holandés de educación superiorResumen En las publicaciones especializadas se ha tratado con mucha atención la movilidad espacial como un mecanismo de la transición del estudio al trabajo. En esta investigación se analiza la relación entre la migración, las circunstancias económicas regionales y las características individuales, utilizando un micro conjunto de datos de egresados de universidades y colegios holandeses. Durante la última década, algunas regiones de Holanda mantienen cuotas cada vez más altas de egresados de colegios. Creemos que la presencia de un mercado laboral amplio es el determinante económico estructural más importante para estos índices de retención mayores. Parece que los determinantes cíclicos afectan en mayor medida la migración de egresados universitarios que la migración de egresados de colegios.
