Investigating how qualified human capital is spatially redistributed within a country – and how such process emerges in the first place – is essential to understand which regions benefit from its concentration in terms of enhanced productivity and potential for growth. Applying structural equations and multilevel modelling to the Istat database on graduates’ transition 2011, this paper seeks to evaluate what is the relationship between the propensity to undertake interregional student mobility and individual skills in the Italian context. Findings confirm that the positive link between the two holds also controlling for family background and the characteristics of the region of origin.
