This report presents the results of an employment survey of 15,583 New Zealanders who received university degrees, diplomas, or certificates during the 1992-93 academic year. Section 1 describes the survey design and population, as well as the general results. The survey found that 47.3 percent of graduates were employed, 27.9 percent were engaged in further study, 13.8 percent were looking for employment, 9.3 percent were going overseas, and 1.7 percent were not available for employment. Responses are also tabulated by gender, occupational grouping, and major employment sector. An appendix provides comparisons to 1991 and 1992 data. Section 2 provides observations on the outlook for graduate employment, which seems to be improving slightly. Section 3, the bulk of the report, provides information on employment destinations for recipients of bachelor's degrees by major subject area.
