Using National Jobs Data to Measure Graduate Impact


The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), welcomes Andrew Foote as he presents, “Using National Jobs Data to Measure Graduate Impact.”

Until recently, very little information was known about earnings and employment outcomes of college graduates, especially by field of study. In 2018, Census released a new experimental data product called Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO).

Users of this data can see how much graduates earn over time, as well as where graduates are employed and in what industry. In this webinar, Andrew Foote discusses the creation of the product, the measurement concepts, and the plans for the future of PSEO moving forward.
