Introduction

This brief provides information about the field or major of bachelor’s degrees, earnings, and selected employment characteristics for the population aged 25 and over with a bachelor’s degree or higher. Data on field of bachelor’s degree was first collected in the American Community Survey (ACS) in 2009. Respondents who reported that their highest degree completed was a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, professional degree, or doctorate degree were asked to write in the specific major(s) of their bachelor’s degree. Respondents with more than one bachelor’s degree, or with more than one major field, were allowed to report multiple fields of degree. This brief examines only the first field of degree reported. Identification of the field of degree was collected only for the bachelor’s degree.
