While information on graduates at the time of graduation is comparable across cycles, information on graduate’s activities at the time of the interview are not directly comparable. For example, labour market outcomes and debt repayment pertain to status three years after graduation for the NGS 2013 compared to two years after graduation for other cycles of NGS.
