June 30 -- The U.S. Census Bureau today announced the release of six new states (nine data partners) — Oregon, Hawaii, Massachusetts, South Dakota, Montana and Georgia — in the Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO) experimental data product. PSEO now includes data on 660 institutions, which cover more than 25% of all college graduates in the United States in 2015. Data users can access the data via the PSEO Explorer tool, raw files, and Census API.
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 they could potentially 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.
