The Comm-Bacc Study: Postbaccalaureate Activities of Degree Recipients from Pennsylvania Institutions 1971-1972.
This report, Comm-Bacc, examines the activity of graduates who received the baccalaureate degree in the academic year 1971-72 from the collegiate institutions of Pennsylvania. The focus concerned the condition of employment and nonemployment that existed in the late summer and early fall of 1972. Data were collected from the placement office at each institution. Major conclusions were: (1) the number of graduates still seeking jobs in the late summer and early fall of 1972 was high: 1 out of 5 in the total group and up to 30% in some fields; (2) a large proportion of those with nonprofessional preparation who found employment were in occupations identified as remote to the college major; (3) Pennsylvania benefits from its own investment in higher education; (4) women graduates are not retiring from either the labor force or the learning force but are continuing their public careers; (5) there is no evidence (1972) of an oversupply of educated persons in the fields of engineering or education; and (6) graduate school attendance is below the level one might anticipate from national data. Appendices include statistical data and institution report forms. (MJM)
