They are made by C. Woody Thompson and Conrad C. Srucky of thc Bureau of Busineu and Economic Research at th* State University of Iowa, and are based on anal* ysls of research at the SUI Bureau.. The findings, entitled "Iowa —1975,~ appear in the latest issue of the SUI publication, the Iowa Business Digest. People will continue to leave Iowa during the next 15 years to seek employment in other states, but the rate of this exodus may now be slowing down, say two State University of Iowa researchers. They predict for 1975 an Iowa population of 3,108,000, an Iowa growth rate about half that of the national average, and the loss of about 350,000 lowans. Commenting on Iowa popula- migration?" ask the SUI men. "Since this has become the fashionable thing to do, we suppose that we ought to join in the lament. But, this we refuse to do." If the process of out-migration attracts only the more imaginative and energetic people, thereby leaving behind the less imaginative and energetic, then there would be real cause for alarm. But, we arc convinced that these fears are groundless, they continue. "Those who do cry havoc overlook a very important quality factor that the educational processes in Iowa have built into our labor export. They have been capable enough to take root in the states of their adoption. By leaving and then staying away, we who 'have remained in Iowa have enjoyed higher per capita incomes and less unemployment."

If we take our 1950 population, subtract the deaths and add the births in Iowa during the decade, we find that some 230,000 people migrated from Iowa between 1950 and 1960. Only six counties did not share Hawk, Linn, Polk, Pottawattamie, Scott and Warren. The greatest losses occurred in the southern tiers of counties. Although they •had but 14.4 per cent of the state's population in 1950, they contributed 24.8 per cent of the state's net out-migration. The counties at either extreme were Monona which lost 25.5 per cent of its population during the decade, and Linn, which gained 13.2 per cent. Why did lowans leave the state? The simple answer for the majority is that there were not enough jobs in Iowa to give them proper employment, the SUI researchers say. While jobs in nonagricultural employment grew during the decade, that growth was less than the number of persons available for employment. Thus, people left the state for better opportunities ra^ ther than remaining to the disadvantage of all.
