Drop Down Selections
Outcome data relating to employment, earnings, continued education, etc., can be viewed in several ways:
- Outcome information for graduates/completers in their first year after graduation for a five year period. (Graduates/completers in 2010-2011, 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.)
- Outcome information for 2014-2015 graduates/completers the first year after graduation/completion; and,
- Outcome information for graduates/completers in their first year after graduation/completion and five years later (i.e., what the graduates/completers’ outcomes are in their first year of graduation/completion (2010-2011) and what they are five years later in 2014-2015.) There will be two drop downs showing 1st year and 5th year outcomes.
Note: Outcomes displaying an asterisk (*) means results are suppressed because there are less than 10 graduates/completers in that program.
Completers Cohort 2010-11 – 2014-15
The cohort includes graduates/completers from Florida public university, college, and career and technical education programs from 2010-11 thru 2014-15. The data for this cohort reflects wages, continuing education and public assistance for the fall following these students’ graduation.
Key concepts related to employment and continuing education outcomes used throughout the report are median earnings and continuing education. The rates reported are combined five year rates for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 graduates. This approach provides sufficient data at the local program level to allow students, parents and other stakeholders to view more complete results. The minimum number of graduates to allow reporting in the related web portal for this project is ten (10 cell size). Results are suppressed when fewer graduates/completers appear on any specific topic.
The median is the middle score in a distribution and graduate/completer earnings reported here reflect a five year median. Annualized 4th calendar year quarter (October, November & December) wages for each year were arranged by institution from lowest to highest and the middle value was selected for each institution and from a combined sorted statewide list. Florida wage data are the underlying source of the earnings data and they cover approximately 95 percent of the Florida labor market. Some information such as wages for out-of-state workers, sole proprietorships, federal employees and military employees may not be included in the data.
The continuing education figures reflect a five year average. The number of students enrolled in higher education in the academic year following graduation/completion (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016) was totaled and divided by total the number of graduates/completers from across the five years. Out-of state continuing education is not included.
As part of the state education system’s efforts to continuously improve, the nationally recognized Florida Education and Training Placement Information Program (FETPIP) tracks employment, earnings, and continuing education outcomes.
