Chapter II summarizes what had already been done within the statistical units of the United Nations system to bring together data on the outflow of trained personnel from developing to developed countries. Chapter III discusses gaps in available statistics and the possibilities of filling them. Chapter IV indicates what kinds of data may be available in countries for examining the outflow of trained personnel.------ Out of print.
