Study: Which Academics Leave Israel?


The Central Bureau of Statistics has released a report that ties the school in which Israelis study, and the degrees they earn, to the odds that they will leave the country.

The number of Israelis with Bachelor’s degrees has been on the rise for years, and between 1985 and 2005 a total of 360,500 Israelis earned at least one college degree. Of those, 4.9% resided overseas.
