This volume presents reports on the flows of graduates from higher education and on their entry into working life in Canada, Denmark, Spain and the United States. Each paper is written according to detailed guidelines designed to assemble information from many sources, to reflect the state of the art, and to illustrate a variety of approaches, methodologies and philosophies. The emphasis is on flows rather than on particular institutions. The paper on Canada by Ramona McDowell and Gilles Jasmin treats social and educational changes since the Second World War, different types of graduates, market conditions, transition to the labor force, and issues of post-secondary education. The study on Denmark by Hanne Traberg and Poul Bache describes higher education, recent changes, structure of outflow from higher education, women in the outflow, changes in transition to working life, and the labor market. The study of Spain by Antonio Casanueva de Luis looks at the Spanish system and its outflow, enrollment trends, developments in graduate employment, and policy development. The section on the United States by E. Stephen Hunt explores trends in the flow of post-secondary students and trends in the educational major and its relation to work. The first two papers include extensive references. (JB)
