The longitudinal education outcomes (LEO) data includes:

  • information from the Department for Education
  • information from the Department for Work and Pensions and HM Revenue and Customs

This experimental release uses LEO data to look at employment and earnings outcomes of higher education graduates one, 3, and 5 years after graduation in the tax year 2014 to 2015.

The outcomes are categorised by gender and subject studied. They update previously published figures by including earnings data for self-employed people for the first time.
