Abstract

Based on data from the second follow-up of the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/12), these Web Tables present information on the employment, enrollment, and debt of first-time bachelor’s degree recipients 4 years after graduation. The tables describe graduates’ employment history and status after 4 years, their current or most recent occupation and salary, and their experiences with unemployment after college. In addition, some tables focus on steps taken toward further education, including enrollment after the 2007–08 bachelor’s degree and attainment of additional degrees. Finally, the tables present information on graduates’ borrowing for postsecondary education and repayment of education loans.
