National Center for Education Statistics
This set of Web Tables presents descriptive statistics on the spring 2009 labor market experiences of subbaccalaureate students who first entered postsecondary education in 2003-04. The Web Tables use data from the nationally representative 2004/09 Beginning Post-secondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:04/09), which followed a cohort of first-time postsecondary students for 6 academic years, from 2003-04 until 2008-09. For both certificate and associate's degree students, results are shown for completers and noncompleters. Completers are categorized based on the highest degree they attained, and non-completers are classified based on their initial degree program. The tables are organized as follows: Tables 1 and 2 introduce the groups of interest by providing percentage distributions of both the initial degree or certificate program of all 2003-04 first-time postsecondary students and the degree or certificate completion status for those no longer enrolled as of spring 2009. Subsequent tables show results by completion status in two series, first for certificate students (tables 3-11) and then for associate's degree students (tables 12-20). Tables 3 and 12 begin each series and provide context for the outcomes reported in the rest of the series by presenting data on demographics, enrollment characteristics, and employment after enrollment. Beginning with tables 4 and 13, each after enrollment. Beginning with tables 4 and 13, each table examines specific spring 2009 employment results for completers and noncompleters with selected demographic, enrollment, and employment characteristics. Tables 4-6 and 13-15 report on the labor force participation of certificate and associate's degree students, respectively. They include data about unemployment spells and spring 2009 employment status, displaying findings by demographics and enrollment characteristics. Tables 7-11 and 16-20 provide further information about certificate and associate's degree students' spring 2009 employment, such as annual earnings, employer-offered benefits, and job satisfaction, by demographics, enrollment characteristics, and employment characteristics. (Contains 100 tables and 3 endnotes.)
