Labor Market Experiences after Postsecondary Education: Earnings and Other Outcomes of Florida's Postsecondary Graduates and Completers
Schneider, Mark
American Institutes for Research
This report results from a partnership between the State of Florida and College Measures. It focuses on the median first-year earnings of recent graduates and completers from Florida's public postsecondary educational institutions: SUS, FCS, and DTCs. The report documents the variation in first-year earnings for completers who earned degrees or certificates from these three postsecondary education systems. The report also presents data on other outcomes, such as the percentage of completers who enrolled in further education or the percentage receiving public welfare. The report presents these data for programs not just institutions and shows that the type of postsecondary credential that completers earn, and where they earn them, matter. The report begins by examining Florida's colleges and DTCs and then focuses on bachelor's degrees granted by Florida's universities. The earnings of completers of Florida's professional programs are also reported. The report concludes with a forecast of the occupations in which employment growth is most likely to occur. Appended are the following tables: (1) Match Rate for Graduates of Universities, by Institution; (2) Match Rate for College Graduates and Completers, by Degree and Institution; and (3) Match Rate for Completers of Career Certificates, by District Technical Center.
