Abstract: In this study, we analize the profile of those people who hold a PhD degree, whether they are Uruguayan (regardless of their country of residence) or immigrants residing in Uruguay. Specifically, we estimate the magnitude of highly qualified emigrants, their demographic profile, scientific, labor, residential and geographical mobility trajectories; as well as their links with the Uruguayan academic community. For this purpose, the information gathered in the First Census of Persons with a Doctorate Degree is analyzed by the Migration Studies Group, where 2415 individuals were located, Uruguayan doctors (regardless of their current place of residence) and immigrants in Uruguay. We started with a list provided by official institutions dedicated to the promotion of knowledge creation and was supplemented with data provided by the respondents, based on the snowball method.
