Oct 28 -- The U.S. Census Bureau today announced the release of new states in the Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO) experimental data product: Alabama, Arizona, Iowa, Missouri, Utah, and Virginia. PSEO now includes data on 534 institutions, which cover approximately 21% of all college graduates in the United States in 2015. Data users can use the PSEO Explorer tool, download raw files or query the Census API to access data.
PSEO tabulations show earnings and employment outcomes for graduates of U.S. post-secondary institutions and are generated by linking graduate transcript records to Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics wage data. This offers prospective students a comprehensive assessment tool to find out how much money they could earn by degree and institution.
The Census Bureau conducts the PSEO in cooperation with higher education institutional systems to examine college degree attainment and graduate earnings. Additional higher education institutions will be included in the database in the coming months, and PSEO is actively working on expanding the number of institutions represented.
