Census Bureau: More Data Released Linking College Degrees and Earnings

Earnings and Employment Outcomes Following Graduation for Colorado Higher Education Institutions

The U.S. Census Bureau released new data on labor market outcomes for college graduates as part of the Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO). These new data feature public institutions from Colorado, and include certificate and associate degrees, in addition to bachelor’s and more advanced degrees. PSEO is a public-use data product produced in cooperation with higher education institutional systems to provide a comprehensive look at degree attainment and graduate earnings nationwide. The Census Bureau is also releasing a web application which allows users to easily browse the earnings data from PSEO.

The Census Bureau’s PSEO pilot research program is conducted in cooperation with higher education institutional systems to examine college degree attainment and graduate earnings. Through agreements with the Census Bureau, the Colorado Department of Higher Education and the University of Texas (released in March 2018) provided administrative education data on enrollment and graduation, which the Census Bureau matched with national jobs statistics produced by the Census Bureau’s Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics program in the Center for Economic Studies.
