Notes: Figures represent a 2018-2019 average. Unemployment and underemployment rates are for recent college graduates (that is, those aged 22 to 27 with a bachelor’s degree or higher), and median wages are for full-time workers with a bachelor's degree only. Early career graduates are those aged 22 to 27, and mid-career graduates are those aged 35 to 45. Graduate degree share is based on the adult working-age population (that is, those aged 25 to 65) with a bachelor's degree or higher. All figures exclude those currently enrolled in school. Data are updated annually at the beginning of each calendar year.
