This briefing outlines a research project which examine the post-degree location choices of foreign-born students receiving PhDs from US universities. Data are from the NSF Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED), which contains information on the characteristics of all individuals receiving a PhD from a US university over the period 1958 to 2008.Combining the SED with data on economic conditions in the birth country of foreign students, we examine how location choices relate to student ability and to economic conditions in the US and in the birth country.
