This paper addresses this lacuna by examining the attractiveness and retention of higher education cities for local attendants in the period after study, using Belgium as an empirical case study. Drawing on a unique linkage of census and register data for 1991- 2010, logistic and Cox regressions illustrate the relative success of smaller cities once individual, familial and contextual factors are considered.
