  • 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 2022 constant dollars. All counts are randomly rounded. 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 2020.
  • 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 information 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 reporting employment income” population.
  • 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 “Cannabis primary groupings” variant of the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) Canada 2016.
  • The study population includes graduates aged 15 to 64 years (on December 31st of the year of graduation) and includes Canadian and international students.
  • All medians are based on employment income. Employment income 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.
