April 22 -- The U.S. Census Bureau today announced the release of new states in the Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO) experimental data product: Louisiana, Ohio, Maine and Connecticut. With the addition of these new states, 336 institutions are included in the PSEO covering approximately 16% of all graduates in the United States in 2015. These new data expand PSEO’s coverage of sub-baccalaureate degrees and certificates, as well as increase the geographic diversity of the coverage. The Census Bureau expects to release PSEO datasets for seven additional states in 2021 -- Alabama, Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Utah, and Virginia.
PSEO is an experimental data product generated by linking graduate transcript records to LEHD data on graduates of participating post-secondary institutions in the United States. PSEO tabulations show earnings and employment outcomes for graduates of post-secondary institutions in the United States and are generated by linking graduate transcript records to Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) wage data. This offers prospective students a comprehensive assessment tool to see how much money they could earn by degree and institution.
PSEO Explorer has been updated to display data for the new institutions. The PSEO Explorer visualization tool can be found at: https://lehd.ces.census.gov/data/pseo_explorer.html
PSEO is also available to query via the Census API, go to https://census.gov/data/developers/data-sets/pseo.html
