Professor John WintersProfessor John Winters was quoted in the Cedar Rapids Gazette story "Iowa’s ‘brain drain’ among worst in U.S., analysis shows." The story focuses on Iowa's "Brain Drain"—measured as the difference between the number of college graduates Iowa produces and the number of college graduates living in the state—which is considered one of the worst in the nation. 

Winters told The Gazette that "It’s all relative, and (Iowa), compared to other states, relatively does a good job, historically, of producing human capital, which is producing college graduates. But the flip side … as far as on the demand side, the demand for college graduates, Iowa overall is not as strong.”
