Statistics: higher education graduate employment and earnings

Experimental statistics on longitudinal education outcomes showing university graduate earnings and employment.

The longitudinal education outcomes (LEO) statistical first releases (SFRs) bring together:

  • education data from the Department for Education (DfE)
  • employment, benefits and earnings data from:
    • the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)

These experimental statistics show employment and earnings of higher education graduates from 2004 (for those who graduated in the academic year ending 2004).

The information is broken down by:

  • employment and earnings 1, 3, 5 and 10 years after graduation
  • personal characteristics (gender, ethnicity, age)
  • university attended
  • subject studied and qualification achieved
  • benefits claimed
