ABSTRACT
This study investigates immigration of the high technology and medical work force to the United States with particular emphasis on the period 1967-78. The results suggest that public policy in the United States toward immigration from developing nations significantly affects such behavior, in both a general sense and for specific occupations (particularly physicians and surgeons).
