The 2013 public use microdata file for the National Graduates Survey (NGS) is now available upon request. Data are available at the Canada and regional levels.

NGS data can be used to assess the extent to which graduates of postsecondary programs have been successful in obtaining employment since graduation, as well as to evaluate their job and career satisfaction.

Data can also be used to determine their rates of under-employment and unemployment as well as rates of under- and over-qualification, and can provide insight into the influence of postsecondary education on occupational achievement.
