  • For more information on the symbols used in this application, see the “Standard table symbols”.
  • The data and methods are subject to revision. Percentages are calculated using rounded medians. All amounts are expressed in 2018 constant dollars. All counts are randomly rounded to a multiple of 5. Due to rounding, components may not add to the totals. See the technical reference guide for further information on data quality and methodology: Labour market outcomes for college and university graduates, 2010 to 2016.
  • For this application, graduates of a given cohort are observed for a period of five years after graduation, although results are only shown for two and five years afterwards. Graduates who had no income data or returned to school full time in any of the five years were excluded from the income analysis subpopulation for the entire five year period. This ensures that the income analysis subpopulation is the same in every year of analysis and the results can be compared over time.
  • The "Number of graduates" represents the total number of individuals graduating in the year of analysis. The medians displayed in this application are based on the “Graduates with employment income” population.
  • Due to data limitations for Ontario colleges, estimates are available for Ontario university graduates only. The Canada estimates exclude college graduates from Ontario.
  • The educational qualifications obtained are grouped according to the Classification of programs and credentials - professional degree variant.
  • The fields of study are grouped according to the “Alternative primary groupings” variant of the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) Canada 2016.
  • The target population includes graduates between 15 and 64 years old (on December 31st of the year of graduation) and includes Canadian and international students.
  • All medians are based on employment income. This category includes wages, salaries and commissions (wages and salaries, commissions from employment, training allowances, tips and gratuities, tax exempted Indian employment income) and net self-employment income (net income from business, profession, farming, fishing and commissions). Net self-employment income may be positive, negative or zero.
