University Student Information System: Graduating Students (USIS-Graduating).
Statistics Canada, Ottawa (Ontario). Education, Science, and Culture Div.
A description is presented of types of information and codes pertaining to graduation statistics of the University Student Information System (USIS), a data base that provides a Canada-wide system of university enrollment statistics. The information for this system is collected on an individual student basis. In 1974 the USIS enrollment statistics were extended to cover the collection of graduation statistics on an individual student basis. Ten elements are proposed, of which two (institution awarding degree, diploma, or certificate, and convocation date) are not in USIS-Enrollment. The remaining eight elements are essentially the same as reported in the enrollment system. The remaining elements are: institution of registration; institutions' own identification of graduating student; social insurance number; sex; qualification received; coded title of the degree, diploma, or certificate awarded; specialization or major field of study; and joint specialization. To date, 21 institutions report in this manner covering approximately 46 percent of the qualifications awarded in a given year. (SW)
