Free Course of the Day: Earnings 10 Years After Graduation - Comparisons

People with a bachelor’s degree typically earn more and are unemployed less often than people without a degree. But that’s only part of the story. Earnings and employment vary by field of major, and they change over time. Data from the U.S. Department of Education show, for example, that 1992–93 college graduates with a career-related major often earned more than those with an academically focused one. This article analyzes data on the earnings and occupations of workers 1 and 10 years after college graduation, by field of major. The first section compares earnings across all majors. A second section highlights 11 degree fields and shows the most common occupations of workers who have a bachelor’s degree in those fields. The final section suggests additional resources. Prepared by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, US Government. Interesting statistics and charts. 11 pages, pdf format, downloadable.
