Follow-Up Report on 2001 Placements of 2000 North Dakota University System Graduates.
North Dakota Univ. System, Bismarck.
This report, based on data from Follow-up Information on North Dakota Education and Training (FINDET), describes the employment status of North Dakota University System (NDUS) graduates for the year 2000 who were employed in the state 1 year after graduation. Approximately half of these graduates were either employed in North Dakota or re-enrolled in North Dakota institutions 1 year after graduation. Approximately half remained in the state 1 year following graduation. More North Dakota residents remained in the state after graduation than did residents of other states. A significant portion of graduates from surrounding states also remained in North Dakota following graduation from an NDUS institution. A high proportion of programs, even those producing large numbers of graduates, retained significant percentages of their graduates in the state. More than half of all graduates retained in the state were employed in the services sector, and 60 percent of those were employed in health or educational services. Graduates of NDUS institutions made significant contributions to the private sector workforce, local government, and state government. Graduates at all levels earned a median monthly full-time wage of $2,147 1 year after graduation, slightly higher than the state median. There was a direct relationship between level of education and earnings. (SM)
