let one existing survey. Specifically, the National Science FaurKla- tion's Survey of Pant curtains addresses of bachelor's and master's graduates after they have 1QfL he universities arc! then uses these in a mailed survey. bile this technique has ban use primarily to trace and surrey those grates ho have stayed in the Unit States, there is no reason to believe that it carrot be used for go ates ho leave the country. The same nwthod owed be used with the Na- tional Rearm C~i] ' s Survey of Earned Orates to dewed pp fol- Icecap data for Ph.D.s who are no Former residing an the Unit - Stay s. While applications of this method scold undoubtedly be sore whet more difficult and expensive in foreign countries, it seems quite feasible, at l-~.ct for recent graduates. Whether it could be used for individ- u~1s who y~-~ted several years ago has to be tented. However, with continued address updating, even applications limited to new graduates would establish a data base for older graduates after several years. As for data on the extent of foreign exposure of American engi- neers, feasibility studies would have to be undertaken to ascertain whether one could obtain such data from surveys of American employers (universities, industrial companies, and government agencies). Sloce American passports can be USA freely for foreign travel without any information being coll~ on specific trips, it is not possible to Main Eta fawn the U. S . Department of State. However, it may be possible to get data fan those gover~nt:~1 agencies of other irxtus- trializec] countries that handle information on intuit foreign visi- tors, be it In the form of visa applications or landing cards. Shad employer surveys prove to be infeasible, surreys of individual engi- neer'; cad be carried cut; hirer, these wed require relatively large samples and, thus, could 1= quite Pensive. Al = ough it is our view that the policy issues that we have iden- tifie] and discussed will nck be substantially change] by improved data inputs on the international movement of engineers, efforts should nev~r- theless be made to supplement the existing data base in order to pro- vide inputs and needed information that may be useful ~ a definitive future evaluation dealing with the nature and impact of the ~nterna- tion~1 movement of engineers.
