Davis, Christine K.; And Others
Procedures and selected results of the 1982 Ontario Graduate Employment Survey are examined. The survey, which is sent to graduates of the 17 Ontario universities, is designed to provide information on the postgraduate educational and labor experiences of graduates within a year after graduation. The fieldwork procedures employed are described, along with the nature of the survey instrument and the response rates achieved. A profile is provided of the 1982 spring graduates in terms of selected demographic and social-background variables, aspects of their educational experiences, and features of their early career paths. Attention is directed to the relationship of these demographic and social background factors, along with aspects of graduates' educational experiences, to the graduates' subsequent educational or early career choices. Level of degree and student majors are also examined, along with the ways by which employed graduates obtained their jobs. Finally, survey data are examined that pertain to the relationship between the kind and amount of the graduates' educational experiences and the educational requirements of their jobs. Included are statistical tables of survey results and the study questionnaire. (SW)
