Consultation description

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) produces graduate labour market statistics (GLMS). GLMS is published every quarter. It provides information on graduate, postgraduate and non-graduate outcomes by different age group for England. The breakdowns include employment rates, unemployment rates and gross median annual earnings.

We’re seeking information on:

  • who uses the GLMS and for what purpose
  • how BIS can make the GLMS more useful
  • users’ views on the future frequency and content of the GLMS, including the proposal to release the statistics on an annual rather than quarterly basis
