 The 2001 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study

The 2001 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:2000/01), is a spring 2001 follow-up of bachelor’s degree recipients from NPSAS:2000. For B&B:2000/01, those members of the NPSAS:2000 sample who completed a bachelor’s degree between July 1, 1999 and June 30, 2000 were identified and contacted for a follow-up interview. The estimates in this report are based on the results of surveys with approximately 10,000 bachelor’s degree recipients, representing about 1.3 million bachelor’s degree completers from 1999–2000.4 The weighted overall response rate for the B&B:2000/01 interview was 74 percent, reflecting an institution response rate of 90 percent and a student response rate of 82 percent.
