Emigration rates by gender, age and educational level can then be computed based on complementary information on origin countries. In particular, they provide an estimate of the scope and characteristics of the "brain drain" to OECD countries (the share of people holding a tertiary degree who have emigrated to the OECD area) by country of birth.
