Abstract

Les diplomes universitaires sont plus nombreux et leur nombre croit plus rapidement dans les grandes villes que dans les petites villes et les regions rurales. Ce taux de croissance relativement eleve tient aux flux migratoires nets et(ou) aux taux plus eleves d'obtention d'un diplome. En s'appuyant sur les donnees tirees des Recensements de 1996 et de 2001, les auteurs du present document testent l'importance relative de ces deux sources de croissance du capital humain en decomposant la croissance du nombre de titulaires de diplomes dans les diverses villes en flux migratoires nets (interieurs et etrangers) et en croissance in situ, autrement dit, croissance attribuable aux taux plus eleves d'obtention d'un diplome dans les populations des residents des villes. Nous constatons que les deux sources sont importantes, la croissance in situ etant toutefois le facteur dominant. Ainsi, les taux eleves d'obtention d'un diplome dans les populations des villes s'expliquent moins par la capacite des villes d'attirer du capital humain que par leur capacite de le generer.
