Graduate and Early Leaver Follow-Up Survey Results, 1977-1978.
Foellinger, Juanita; Aspinwall-Lamberts, Julie
A survey was conducted during Spring 1979 to assess the employment and/or educational activities of Lane Community College (LCC) vocational students who either graduated or dropped out during 1977-78. Members of the survey sample, comprised of 442 graduates and 306 early leavers, were asked to indicate: (1) the full-time/part-time status of their current job or enrollment; (2) their current salaries, if employed; and (3) the relationship of their job or current major to their field of training at LCC. Major findings, based on a 52.2% response rate from graduates and a 26.3% response rate from early leavers, indicated that while approximately the same proportion (78%) of both groups were not attending school, the employment rate for graduates (84%) was higher than that for early leavers (68.2%). Of those who were employed, 83.7% were working full-time, and 74.8% were in jobs related to their LCC training. Salary figures indicate that graduates earned a median income between $900 and $999, compared to early leavers who earned on an average between $600 and $699; and that the median female income bracket was $200 to $300 lower than the male median. The survey report summarizes the sex, age, and ethnic characteristics of the respondents, indicates the percentage considered to be disadvantaged or handicapped, and provides a breakdown of findings for each of LCC's vocational education clusters: business/data processing, health occupations, mechanics/electronics, natural science, and public service. Data tables and the questionnaire are included. (JP)
