A distribution curves comparison approach to analyze the university moving students performance

Risultato della ricerca: Conference contribution


Nowadays in Italy we observe a one-directional migration flow of university students, typically from the South to the North. It represents the new millennium migration flow: people migrate looking for better job opportunities already during their educational path, believing that northern universities may provide more opportunities for being more successful. This paper aims to study the performance of those Sicilian students that move to the northern universities, to take the second level degree, in comparison with those remain in Sicily. We want to test the empirical evidence that shows a similar performance between the two groups of students. We use different measures of performance and follow a new methodology based on the comparison among the distribution curves. Results seems to confirm our idea, highlighting some difference.
