Brehman, George E., Jr.
Results of a survey of the employment status of Pennsylvania college graduates are presented. A total of 39,207 graduates were surveyed (about 66.1 percent of the graduates at all degree levels). Statistical tables and narrative explanations cover: associate degree graduates, baccalaureate graduates, baccalaureate graduates in fields other than education, master's degree graduates, doctoral degree graduates, and first-professional degree graduates. Attention is directed to the proportions of graduates in each degree field and level that are: (1) employed in their field of preparation, (2) employed in another field, (3) employed in Pennsylvania, (4) employed part-time, (5) unemployed, (6) in military service, (7) seeking an advanced degree, or (8) engaged in some other activity. Also assessed was how differences in postgraduation activities were affected by institutional type: state colleges and universities, state-related, state-aided, and private institutions, community colleges, and proprietary schools. Information is also provided on the fields in which graduates are employed. Information on the sampling adequacy of the study group is included. (SW)
